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! 

The V&A Professional Development programme for Spring/Summer 2017 is now available

The V&A Professional Development programme for Spring/Summer 2017 is now available to view online with details of courses available on the V&A website and through our dedicated LinkedIn showcase page. The full course booklet is also available to download here (PDF).

By sharing the expertise and knowledge of our staff, our goal is to support cultural institutions in continuing to provide a service of the highest quality to the public. This is a process we are proud to be involved in and over the coming years we hope to support the development of professionals across the sector, both nurturing and learning from the experiences of those working in other museums, galleries, and heritage centres.

We understand that the heart of every museum is its staff, without whom our cultural heritage could not be preserved and made accessible for years to come. Our aim is to enrich the skills already held by delegates, to enable growth led by internal, well-trained staff, and to inspire the next generation joining the museum and heritage sector by providing exciting and innovative courses that offer the skills that they need to begin their careers.
