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.

Complete the Economics of Touring Exhibitions Survey 2015 and win a Touring Exhibitions Group (TEG) workshop place and travel bursary

The Economics of Touring Exhibitions survey will take approximately 10 minutes or less to complete and will help TEG gain a snapshot of touring exhibitions practice in the UK today; the economic and partnership models being used, motivations for touring, and the barriers and challenges that prevent some venues engaging in touring activity. The information provided will help TEG develop the Economics of Touring Exhibitions: Models for Practice professional development training and toolkit.

Museums, galleries, heritage sites and arts venues of all types are encouraged to participate. Whether you originate or hire touring exhibitions, or are interested to engage in touring in the future, we are keen to receive your feedback. Please pass the link on to your colleagues and contacts.

Complete the survey by Friday 31st July 2015 to be entered into a prize draw to win a free place and travel bursary to attend one of TEG's forthcoming Economics of Touring Exhibitions seminars. There is one free place and up to £50 travel bursary available per ACE region. The survey will remain open until the 28th August 2015.

The survey has been developed as part of TEG's ACE funded resilience programme Economics of Touring Exhibitions: Models for Practice, which is also supported by TESS demountable.
