Sustainability Project Sharing Day
28th March 2018, Kelmscott Manor, Lechlade, GL7 3HJ
Kelmscott Manor invites museums from around the area to come and find out more about their Arts Council England Resilience funded sustainability project and the Manor's plans, and to hear about what they have learnt.
In a time of political and economic uncertainty and an ever increasing demand on resources, Kelmscott Manor is looking for innovative ways to increase its profile and become more sustainable so that the Manor and its heritage will continue to attract visitors and be maintained for future generations. The day will feature talks about the project and also a talk by a professional fundraiser with a specialism in museums.
Lunch will be provided and a tour of the beautiful property will also be offered. The manor, famed for their cream teas, has been described as an 'utterly beautiful slice of heaven', and this is a day not to be missed!
Help improve SPECTRUM: the UK Collection Management Standard
The Collections Trust is consulting widely to check that SPECTRUM: the UK Collection Management Standard still meets the needs of museums large and small. This will inform the next revision, SPECTRUM 5.0, to be published in 2017.
Taking place now, through the consultation we are looking to involve as many of the Collections Management community as possible to ensure SPECTRUM 5.0 reflects real changes in practice.
