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.

Audience Development - research

Two consultants working in the museums and heritage sector are undertaking research about audience development to feed into a session they are running at the Museums Association Conference in Cardiff in October 2014.

They would very much appreciate it if staff, volunteers or trustees working in museums of any size and location across the UK, who have some kind of involvement in audience development, marketing or visitor engagement, could spend a few minutes to fill out their survey.  It should take 5-10 minutes.

The survey is anonymous but if you are interested in receiving the finished report on this research, please provide contact details at the end and they will send it to you.
