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.

#AskACurator Day - global event on 17 September 2014

#AskACurator is an all day event on 17 September 2014 and offers people a way to talk to curators and people who work in cultural venues they normally don’t have access to.

#AskACurator is open to everyone: Museums, galleries, National Trust, Theatres, and more. People can ask anything that they’re curious about or want more information on.

  • What’s it’ like to be a curator?
  • How do you decide what to display?
  • What is the most unique object in your collection?

There's more information and a simple sign up form here:
