The British Museum is seeking five new partner museums to participate in its annual Knowledge Exchange programme for 2017.
The Knowledge Exchange programme is part of the wide-ranging National Programmes at the British Museum, which partners with c.250 UK organisations a year through single-object Spotlight tours, touring exhibitions, partnership galleries, short and long-term loans, training and skills development initiatives.
Knowledge Exchange offers the opportunity of a fully funded and co-ordinated five-day professional exchange between paid staff, in any role, at selected partner museums and the British Museum.
The exchanges are organised by the UK Partnerships Co-ordinator at the British Museum and are made possible by the generous support of the Vivmar Foundation. The British Museum will book and pay for all travel, accommodation and subsistence costs associated with the exchanges.
One person from each of the five partner museums will be selected for an exchange with the British Museum. Each partner museum will select one person from the British Museum to host, creating ten exchanges in total.
For further information please see the brief knowledge-exchange-programme-2017-call-for-partners.
