Museums briefing session - Plymouth
Date: 16 September, 2011
Venue: Barbican Theatre, Castle Street, Plymouth, PL1 2NJ
Times: 10.30am to 1.30pm
About the Museums briefing sessions:
From 1October 2011 Arts Council England will be taking over some of the functions currently held by the Museums Libraries and Archives Council (MLA). To prepare for this change we are holding briefing sessions in Plymouth, Birmingham, Brighton, Cambridge, London, Manchester and Newcastle over two weeks commencing 12 September 2011.
One focus of the briefings will be to explain the application process for the major grant strand of Renaissance, discuss the programme in detail and provide applicants with guidance on how to apply for funding. Furthermore, we will be discussing the companion document to Achieving great art for everyone; revisiting Arts Council England’s strategic goals and setting out how museums and libraries can be reflected in our mission between 2012 and 2015.
Who should attend?
This briefing event is suitable for delegates working in senior roles within the museums sector in England. It may also appeal to those working as cultural contacts within Local Authorities.
Please note that places on this briefing event are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis and only one place per organisation can be booked.
10.30am – 11am Registration - tea/coffee

Transport and parking
We recommend using public transport to travel to this event because Plymouth is likely to be busy around this time due to the city hosting the British Art Show and America’s Cup.
For information on how to get to the Barbican and parking, please follow the link to their website. There is no dedicated parking for blue badge holders immediately outside the venue, so if you need any assistance, please complete the question about access requirements when you register.
If you are unable to attend you can still get involved by viewing the companion piece to Achieving great for everyone and the Applicant Guidance for the Renaissance Major Grants programme on the Arts Council website after the event.
