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.

engage: the Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award Artist Residency

engage is currently inviting galleries, museums and visual arts venues throughout the United Kingdom to submit proposals to host the 2015 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA), Artist in Residence, worth £15,000.

The Award funds a 10-week artist/s residency and public art commission to be displayed within the host venue or nearby. A further £2,000 will be made available to the host venue to cover expenses. Applications are invited from organisations with experience in hosting artist residencies and/or running learning programmes, and those with little experience for whom this would be a good opportunity to develop work in this area.

The deadline is 10 am on Tuesday 22 April 2014.

Further information is available in the attached document and on the website.
