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.

Partnership investment - open call from Artswork

Artswork, in its role as the South East Bridge organisation (exept the Kent districts of Dartfort, Gravesham, Swale and Medway), is looking to develop and support strategic and collaborative partnerships to create long term sustainable opportunities for children and young people to participate in arts and culture, particularly in areas of least engagement.

Now entering the third year of its Bridge role, Artswork wishes to build on the work it has already developed through its SE Bridge Partnership Investment Frameworks 2012/13/14 and, in 2014/15, create further opportunities for new strategic ways of working across the South East, investing in new business models for the delivery of high quality arts and cultural work for, with and by children and young people.

An amount of between £20,000 and £50,000 is available per partnership investment which needs to be matched on at least a £1 for 50p basis. 

Please see the call for proposals document below for further information.
