Care of Collections Forum annual meeting

The Care of Collections Forum Annual Meeting and AGM
Clore Auditorium
Tate Britain, Millbank
London SW1P 4RG
Tuesday 19 April 2005

The theme for this year's annual all-day meeting is
"Delivering Collection Care Nationwide".

The last few years have seen radical changes in the way that
government support is delivered to cultural institutions in the
regions. In England, substantial funds have been directed to
regional museums through Renaissance in the Regions and Designation.
At the same time the nature of the support offered by Regional MLAs
has changed. The aim of the day is to discuss how the current
arrangements are affecting Collections Care and how collections care
is supported in the rest of the country.

The morning session is will look at the impact of the Renaissance in
the Regions programme.  It will begin with an overview of this
programme to re-invigorate the non-national museums in the English
Regions and will be followed by presentations on important
collections care initiatives being made by all three of the Phase 1
Hubs.  Phase 1 Hubs are those that received the bulk of the funding
following the Government's 2002 Spending Review.

The afternoon session will look at what is happening in Scotland and
Wales, in the English heritage agencies such as English Heritage,
Historic Royal Palaces and the National Trust, and in the Archive
and Library sector. Followed by discussion

1:30 pm Care of Collections Annual General Meeting
