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.

Looking for art and craft materials for your museum’s activities and events?

Buying craft materials for workshops and activities can make a hole in your budget. Did you know that local charity the Southampton Scrapstore can help? 

The Scrapstore collects and holds a wide variety of waste materials, donated by local businesses, which are then re-used in the community for arts and craft projects and events. Materials can be used by groups, schools and individuals, also by artists for use in professional art/craft workshops.
