Event description

Description

Over the past five years, the lending and borrowing landscape in UK museums and galleries has been the subject of increased focus, activity, training and funding. Art Fund, the National Museum Directors' Council (NMDC) and the Touring Exhibitions Group (TEG) invite you to join them, and colleagues from Arts Council England (ACE) and the National Museums, to:

  • Be inspired to lend and borrow to achieve your organisation's objectives

  • Review and reflect on the loans activity resulting from programmes including the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund, Ready to Borrow and Preparing to Borrow, and the wider context and agenda set by the Mendoza and DCMS Reviews

  • Consider what changes and adaptations still need to be made to facilitate and maximise the impact of loans

  • Discuss future opportunities for lending and borrowing between museums and galleries

Tickets:

Tickets are £35 or £25 for TEG and NMDC members, and anyone working at one of the National Art Pass network of Art Fund museum partners.

Bursaries:

A number of bursaries are available to support attendance and travel. For further information please email charlotte@teg.org.uk
