Delivered as part of TEG’s year-long Preparing to Borrow programme, supported by Arts Council England, the Art Fund and TESS Demountable, the workshops support 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
- Facilities reports
- Government Indemnity and commercial insurance
- Emergency planning
Each workshop is delivered by a TEG trainer, William Brown, National Security Advisor, and a member of the Art Fund 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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Training dates in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will be announced shortly, email email@example.com to register your interest in attending one of these sessions.
