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 firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
Knowledge Exchange Programme 2014 - British Museum seeks partners
The British Museum is looking for new partners for the 2014 Knowledge Exchange programme. They are keen to build on current relationships as well as forging new effective partnerships with museums and arts and heritage organisations with whom they have not yet had the opportunity to work.
Organisations who participate in this fully funded programme have the opportunity for a member of their staff to spend 5 days at the British Museum and, in return, host a British Museum colleague for 5 days. The programme offers a unique opportunity to gain insight into another organisation/department, where ideas and skills can be shared. The ethos of the programme is the willingness to create and collaborate to develop varied and meaningful exchanges which are mutually beneficial to both the individual on the exchange and the host organisation.
The programme is funded and administered by the Partnership UK team at the British Museum (funding covers the cost of travel, accommodation and subsistence).
For further details of the remit and scope of the exchange please see the attached document.
How to submit an expression of interest:
If you would like your organisation to be part of the 2014 Knowledge Exchange programme, please make contact with the Partnership UK Team.
Expressions of interest to be received no later than Friday 3 May 2014.
Please provide a short paragraph for each of the following:
- Why would you like your organisation to be part of the 2014 programme?
- How could the staff at your organisation benefit from the skills/ knowledge exchange?
