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 joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Young Leaders – European Museum Leadership Programme

After a successful leadership pilot project 2014 in Ribnica funded by the Culture Ministry of Slovenia, a 3.5 day intensive leadership programme in Munch, Germany, will bring together 16 young museums professionals from different countries in Europe.

A bursary scheme is being developed in liaising with ICOM National Committees and national museum associations that will (part) fund individuals spaces.

The main aim of this introductory training programme is to broaden the way we think about museums and their role in society and explore our own leadership potential in all its facets with the notion that we have to share responsibilities to be able to best co-create robust and flexible cultural organisations that meet the needs of a changing society.

The deadline for applications is 26 June 2015.
