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.

All these webinars will be led by Geoffrey Brown who has been advising on EU funding applications for over 15 years, and who has an unrivalled knowledge and experience of EU funding. Geoffrey will tell you what you really need to know about EU opportunities.

Please note that Geoffrey can also provide more detailed assistance to help you develop your application, especially with regard to the Creative Europe: Culture programme - in the final call for projects for the previous Culture programme, Geoffrey had a 100% success rate regarding the applications for which he provided detailed advice. Fees are modest for the provision of this advice.
