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.

Hampshire Solent Digital Narratives project - get involved!

We are delighted to announce that the Hampshire Solent Improving Museums’ Storytelling Through Digital Narratives project has now been launched. The lead consultant for the project is Abhay Adhikari (@gopaldass on Twitter). We will be announcing additional workshop facilitators shortly.

Improving Museums’ Storytelling Through Digital Narratives will enable museums to use creative storytelling techniques as a method for engaging new audiences and encouraging participation in online and offline events. The project will provide intensive support to 5 museums across the Hampshire and Solent area over a period of one year as well as providing four workshops that other Hampshire Solent museums can also take part in.

All museums interested in taking part should attend the project's starter workshop on Monday 7 April 2014. The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 11 April 2014.
