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.

Get started with delivering Arts Award

Artswork has published a guide to help people working in the museums and heritage sector to get started with delivering Arts Award. Commissioned from Future Creative, the guide is based on real experience, through a pilot programme supported by Artswork and the Royal Opera House Bridge.

The participating groups of young people (aged 7 to 14) explored a range of art forms, including creative writing, 3D making, puppetry, film and architecture and successfully achieved Arts Award at Discover to Bronze levels through the programme.
