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! 

Final call: Erasmus+ funded interns from Greece

Final call: Expressions of Interest close on 15 March 2017

Through our partnership with Democritus University of Thrace, Greece (DUTH) we are helping to identify workplace opportunities for Erasmus+ funded internships.

Your museum can define the work that the student will undertake during their internship. Each student funded by an Erasmus+ scholarship can access finance for their travel, accommodation and living expenses during their internship period.

A host museum is not required to make any financial input to the travel, accommodation or maintenance of the student, just to provide meaningful work experience suitable for a final-year History or Anthropology student.
