Event description

Description

The TEG Preparing to Borrow workshop supports participants to acquire the knowledge and confidence to make an application to borrow an object or exhibition.

It is an interactive session, based on problem solving and discussion, covering:

  • The benefits of borrowing

  • Researching suitable objects and exhibitions for loan and hire

  • Making a case to borrow

  • Communicating with lenders

  • Loan applications

  • Fees and contracts

  • Sources of funding

  • Scheduling

  • Transportation

  • Facilities reports

  • Government Indemnity and commercial insurance

  • Security

  • Emergency planning

The workshop is delivered by a TEG trainer, William Brown, National Security Advisor, and a member of Art Fund's team, who will introduce their forthcoming funding initiative, the Weston Loan Programme. The training encourages networking, and provides the opportunity to meet colleagues from other organisations who are looking to borrow and find partners.

Ten travel bursaries are available for each workshop, up to the value of £30. If you would like to apply for a bursary, or if you have any questions about the workshop or the Preparing to Borrow programme, email charlotte@teg.org.uk

TEG is able to provide sign-language interpretation and/or induction loop facilities, if requested four weeks in advance of an event. Please indicate your communication and access requirements when booking.

Full details of the Art Fund’s Weston Loan Programme will also be available on their website: www.artfund.org. To keep up-to-date with developments sign up to Art Fund’s Museum Bulletin: www.artfund.org/bulletin

The workshops are part of TEG’s Preparing to Borrow programme, designed to support Arts Council England’s (ACE) Ready to Borrow scheme. The one-year programme will also deliver a range of resources, including a Guide to Borrowing from UK collections, and mentoring opportunities.
