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.

Creative Europe

From 2014, Creative Europe will replace the MEDIA, MEDIA Mundus and Culture programmes.

With a total budget of €1.46 billion (2014 – 2020), Creative Europe represents a budget increase of 9% compared to the previous programmes.

Creative Europe will build on the successes of the previous programmes. The aim is to further strengthen cross border cooperation between the creative sectors within the EU and beyond. Through Creative Europe the cultural and creative sectors will contribute to cultural diversity as well as to growth and jobs in Europe in line with the "Europe 2020 Strategy" for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
