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 to register your interest.

Measuring the Impact of the Arts

How do you measure and evidence the impact of your work?

A New Direction, Arts Inform, The Barbican, The Roundhouse The Lyric and The Royal Opera House, alongside London Transport Museum, The Horniman, Dance United, Spitalfields Music and The Whitechapel Gallery, have been doing an exciting piece of collective work to explore this question.

A series of workshops and collaborative studies have resulted in a new website - a one-stop shop for research about the value of cultural education, as well as resources and frameworks for measurement.

The organisations involved in this debate would love to hear from you if you’re aware of anything that they've missed – in terms of research, tools etc, so do get in touch with them if you want to expand this resource.
