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.

British Council offers India travel grants

The British Council, through its Connections through Culture programme in India, is offering travel grants for non-national museums to travel to India. The aim of the scheme is to enable UK non-national museums to build and develop institutional links, to share skills and to create joint projects or exhibitions with museums in India. Each grant is sufficient to cover the total cost of a week-long visit to India. The grant scheme is open to all non-national museums in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

For further details and an application form, contact Jane Weeks, Museums & Heritage Adviser, British Council.

The deadline for applications is 18 July 2014 and travel must be undertaken by 28 May 2015.
