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.
Small Experiment & Community Catalyst funding available for Swale & Medway
What is a Small Experiment?
This is an opportunity for anyone to experiment with innovative methods of planning and shaping projects and involving local people in activities. You could put on a new kind of event, research a larger idea, start something to bring together people in your area, work with new partners in the arts or elsewhere. If you have ideas, 'Ideas Test' want to hear from you, and can provide up to £2,000 towards your Experiment.
How to apply:
There’s no form! You need to explain what your idea is, how you will test it and who will benefit. Your idea needs to fit with the Programme Principles and Aims. You can write up to 500 words in what ever format suits you. You can submit your information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or post it to: Experiments at Ideas Test, Creek Creative, No 1 Abbey Street, Faversham, Kent. ME13 7BE
