Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact to register your interest.

Transformers application deadline extended to 27 May 2015

There are 24 places available on the programme, which will run from July 2015 until March 2016, and there is no fee to participate. The programme is open to individuals in museums in England, Scotland and Wales, and the programme includes peer-supported learning, residential courses, and the chance to pitch for £3,000 microfunding to invest in change for themselves and their organisations.
