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 email@example.com to register your interest.
Age Collective – Manifesto for Age Friendly Museums
Age Collective is a partnership project between the British Museum, Glasgow Life (Glasgow Museums), Manchester Museum and National Museums Northern Ireland.
The Age Collective Manifesto for Age Friendly Museums was created from the outcomes of a UK-wide cross-sector seminar series which invited practitioners to discuss the question, "How can museums and galleries better work with older people in their communities?" using open space methodology.
The Age Collective website includes a report with useful information and discussion from their London seminar in 2013.
Reports from other seminars held across the country are available.
If you would like to be added to the Age Collective mailing list, please email with your name, email address, organisation and role.
