- Just a reminder that LGBT History Month is in February and that 2018 marks the centenary of (some) women getting the vote (#Vote100). Could you please let me know if you are planning any exhibitions or activities around these events, so that I might be able to promote them through the County Council’s communications?
- ICOM are offering travel bursaries of up to £700 for museum professionals to help travel to study at European museums and collections. The deadline is 5 February. For details visit
