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.

V&A Innovative Leadership Programme 2015-16

The V&A Innovative Leadership Programme has been helping people develop new skills, new insights and new opportunities for more than a decade. This 10 month programme brings together seminars, workshops, action learning, individual coaching and online learning resources to create a powerful tool for personal and professional growth.

Over 12 workshops you will be immersed in a unique learning environment in which you will explore how to engage your passion with the practicalities of leading and managing in an ever changing and increasingly complex world and how to lead innovatively in the creative industries.

As well as theoretical reflection, you’ll acquire hands-on management skills – finance, team dynamics, strategy, problem solving- and get the opportunity to develop your own style of leadership.

Perhaps most importantly, you’ll develop a tight-knit, supportive network with your peers. People who are amongst the most talented and dedicated people working in the Arts, Creative and Cultural Sector today.

In the last ten years we have welcomed over 200 participants onto our programmes. We’ve seen graduates move on to take up leadership roles in institutions including the National Theatre, the Tate, the British Film Institute and British Museum, and our illustrious network of alumni continues to grow.

If you want to take your career in the arts to the next level, why not join them?
