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.
Work with an artist on a Museums at Nightclub!
The Museums at Nightclub will be an artist-led, touring event series produced by a consortium of venues in conjunction with Culture24, taking place in areas with low engagement in the arts. It will feature artists who specialise in participatory arts events, and who have worked on the Connect10 project in previous years.
Culture24 are developing a proposal to submit to Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Programme involving a partnership with the participating venues.
Venues from anywhere in England may express an interest but preference will be given to those identified by the Taking Part Survey (2008 – 2010) as being in the 118 local authority areas in the country with the lowest level of engagement in the arts.
Would this work for your organisation?
Find out more: take a look at the Taking Part Survey list to check your local authority’s status (South East areas are: Slough, Swale, Medway, Rushmoor, Dartford, Gravesham, Dover, Thanet) and download their 3 page information pack about the Museums at Nightclub project, schedules and finance.
We want this stage of the project to be developed in partnership with the participating venues, so please do come to us with your ideas and suggestions!
