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.

Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund first round deadline 14 September 2017.

A programme designed to provide regional museums and museum visitors with increased access to national museum and gallery collections.

Alongside Arts Council England’s funding scheme 'Ready to Borrow' and the Touring Exhibition Group initiative 'Preparing to Borrow', and other national programmes, the Weston Loan Programme will provide funding for regional museums to secure important strategic loans and maximise loan opportunities in the context of their own collections and communities.

We recognise the great value of our national collections being shared more widely across the UK, and hope that museum staff, collections and audiences nationwide will benefit from this programme over the next three years, and beyond.

The programme has opened for applications and the deadline for the first round is 12noon on Wednesday 14 September 2017.
