Heritage Pathway: Site Visit to Charleston Farmhouse and Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft

When: 14 June 2018

Interested in a career in the heritage sector? Join the Heritage Pathway expedition to Sussex. This trip will focus on the opportunities and challenges faced by smaller independent museums and heritage organisations, and will provide insights into how research connects across the broad range of these organisations’ activities. You’ll have an opportunity to meet and network with curators and museum directors and gain insights into the operations of two museums.

Register to visit Charleston, the Bloomsbury home of Art & Ideas, where you will enjoy a specialist tour before pausing for lunch. In the afternoon you will visit Ditchling Museum of Art + Craft, to discuss the ways in which museums can tell the story of landscapes and artistic movements.
