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.

Navigating the Art Market Professional Development Course

The Art Fund has announced a refreshed version of their Navigating the Art Market professional development course for 2016. Developed in partnership with Sotheby's Institute of Art, the course is designed to promote a practical understanding of the art market through a combination of online learning and seminars in London, with spaces fully funded by the Art Fund.

The course is targeted towards early career curators with limited experience of engaging with the art market, and more experienced curators wishing to refresh their knowledge.

In 2016 the course will be delivered in two parts, each comprising two online sessions and a seminar day. The first part will take place from mid-February to early March, & the second from mid-April to early May.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 29 January.
