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.

The Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy programme offer support for groups and networks

The Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy programme wants to encourage and support networks, collaboration and group learning in fundraising across England in the arts and cultural sector.  They know that there are lots of informal and formal groups & networks in place, linking people through geography or sector area.  They also know that networks can be fragile, dependent on one or two individuals and subject to members having the time and money to attend meetings.

The Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy programme want to support groups or networks to arrange their own fundraising training event, conference, seminar or introductory meeting. To do this, we have set aside some funding to pay some of the associated costs that arise from organising these events.  This may include participants’ travel costs, venue hire, catering, fees for speakers/guests, or any other relevant expenditure. We will pay costs up to a maximum of £1,500 for any single event.

Applications need to be submitted by 12pm on Friday 31 July 2015.
