TEG Marketplace IDEAS Session - Proposals invited
At this year’s Marketplace, to be held in Southampton on 17 April, TEG is hosting a new ‘Ideas’ session. This will be a series of quick fire, informal presentations delivered by you, TEG members, who have an idea for a new touring exhibition. This should be in the early stages of development – perhaps you are seeking partners, host venues, or organisations who can lend exhibits to you to complement your idea? You may be seeking an expert in a particular field, someone to share a funding proposal, anything in fact in the planning of a touring exhibition. What better location than the TEG Marketplace to get all those captive touring exhibitions specialists on your side?
We’re offering 5 minutes of time to organisations and individuals who can send us proposals (subject to demand!). Please send us up to 3 images and 200 words describing what your presentation will be. This shouldn’t be a sales pitch for an existing exhibition, but a new development you are looking to move forward. It may only be a tiny idea at the moment, but we can help it grow.
We’ll be working in the lecture theatre at Southampton City Art Gallery, so there is scope to show images, but it’s not necessary.
Emails your proposal to Alice.Briggs@ceredigion.gov.uk and louise.hesketh@halton.gov.uk by March 13, and we’ll confirm with you by 27 March.
NOTE: Presentation slots will be available to registered Marketplace delegates only. For full details about this year's Marketplace and online booking, please see the Marketplace page.

Professional Development
New for 2014 is TEG’s Professional Development Programme on touring exhibitions. There are two topics on offer for both members and non-members. They can be booked as one full day or a half-day session or as individual modules.

The aim of the sessions is to introduce the principles and practices of touring exhibitions and provide basic level skills and knowledge for producing and receiving touring exhibitions. Both sessions will encourage active learning by sharing up to date examples of best practice and creating practical resources. Delivered by trainers with vast experience of working in the sector the sessions are also an opportunity to meet other professionals or students interested in touring exhibition work.

PRINCIPLES OF TOURING EXHIBITIONS
Introduces the principles and practices of producing touring exhibitions. The session is aimed at people who are new to touring exhibition work. A full day session will cover the following modules, you can also pick a selection of modules to create a half-day session.

• Finding the right exhibition
Ways of finding touring exhibitions for hire will be introduced. Delegates will then actively assess the suitability of exhibitions for venues by looking at real examples of information packs on touring exhibitions. A key information checklist will be produced.

• Working with exhibition organisers
Introduction to the different ways of working with other venues of organisations on touring exhibitions followed by a discussion exercise based on different scenarios that the group will be asked to come up with solutions for.

• Caring for objects
An introduction to environmental conditions, security, packing and planning for emergencies. Delegates will look at real venue facilities reports and think about the concerns of lenders through active questions. They will learn how and why facilities reports are used to share this information between venues.

• Handling, packing and transport
This module will introduce delegates to the principles of handling objects for tour. Key considerations and different methods of packing will be covered. If time and facilities permit the session can also include practical handling of objects.

• Audience development and maximising impact
Real case studies will be used to show how touring exhibitions can be used to involve and attract new audiences. Delegates will be given exhibition examples to discuss in groups and share creative ideas for maximising the impact of touring exhibitions.

• Evaluation
Introduction to the importance of evaluation and different approaches and methods to use.

BEGINNING TO TOUR
Introduces the principles and practices of producing touring exhibitions. The session is aimed at people who want to start to tour exhibitions or develop their knowledge or this area of work. A full or half day session can be created from the following modules:

• Tour packs
Delegates will review information produced by tour organisers (tour packs) to market exhibitions to hirers and assess their usefulness. Through group discussion a list of key information for tour packs will be produced. Delegates will actively think through the information that should be included in tour packs for specific exhibitions.

• Marketing exhibitions and finding venues
Different ways of communicating with potential venues will be introduced and the best approach for specific exhibitions discussed.

• Caring for objects, lenders and makers
Delegates will discuss the key information to consider before touring specific objects and working with lenders and makers of objects. This will include environmental conditions, security, packing and transport.

• Assessing suitability of venues
Using real examples of exhibitions and facilities reports delegates will actively assess whether venues are suitable and consider what questions might need to be asked, or considered on site visits in order to assess this further.

• Funding touring exhibitions
Through active discussion of case studies different funding models and sources will be discussed alongside the best approach to funding applications (this can be focused to suit the type of venues participating). A practical exercise will require delegates to draft an exhibition fundraising plan. A list of resources and further reading would be included in delegate packs.

• Responsibilities and agreements
Delegates will be able to view real examples of agreements for touring exhibitions between institutions and lenders, producers and hirers, artists and producers. They will think through the key information to include and the best approach to contract negotiation.

• Evaluation
The importance of effective evaluation and what it can be used for will be outlined. Real case studies will enable delegates to actively review and assess the impact of actual evaluation methods.

COST AND BOOKING
The cost of a day training session will be £40 for TEG members and £60 for non-members.

Results of TEG Survey: Your Training Needs

Thanks to all respondents to TEG's recent survey on training needs with regard to exhibitions and touring. Our objective is to identify the needs of the sector and then begin to shape TEG's training provision to meet those needs. Responses to the Survey was an item of special business at the AGM at the Edinburgh Marketplace on 27 April 2012. TEG members were thanked for taking the time to fill in the survey, and Emily Allen, Charlotte Dew, Karen Lewis and Claire Longrigg were thanked for their work on the survey. The Committee now envisaged that a small working group would analyse the results, and members were asked to contact Emily Allen (see Contacts webpage) if they had expertise they would like to share and if they would like to join this group. Results and recommendations will be announced in a forthcoming e-newsletter.

Hampshire, Thursday 16 - Friday 17 April

PROGRAMME

Pre-Marketplace Seminar
Thursday 16 April, 13.30-16.30
Winchester Discovery Centre, Hampshire


Economics of Touring Exhibitions - Models for Practice
Touring exhibitions maximise an organisation's impact and reach, enabling partnership working and best use of financial and intellectual resources. Within a funding environment that demands flexibility and resilience, touring can enable and enhance high-quality exhibitions and deliver greater access to collections. This seminar will look at different sources of funding and models for producing touring exhibitions.

Arts Council England (ACE) will provide information on their Strategic Touring fund, designed to encourage collaboration between organisations, so that more people across England experience and are inspired by arts.

An ACE Strategic Touring grant awarded to a partnership of three galleries – 20-21 Visual Arts Centre in Scunthorpe, Darts - Doncaster Community Arts, and The Civic, Barnsley – has supported the development of an exhibition of work by children’s book illustrator, Nick Sharratt. The Civic's Exhibition Curator David Sinclair will reflect on his experience of delivering this ACE-funded project and the consortium’s approach to working together.

The Art Fund will present 'Art Happens', their crowdfunding platform that offers UK museums and galleries the opportunity to work with the Art Fund to raise funds and reach a wider audience. A member of the Art Happens team will talk about how the platform works and the support available to participating museums.

Nick Suffolk, Head of Public Programmes for Hampshire Cultural Trust, will introduce the Trust and explore touring models that have been employed across the wide variety of venues in its portfolio.

Our 2010 Marketplace was very successful with about 120 delegates from 72 different organisations contributing to the buzzing atmosphere of the Arena and the accompanying programme of lively and informative seminars.  TEG is very grateful to Leeds City Museum for hosting the event and for giving delegates the opportunity to enjoy a tour of the Museum and the nearby Art Gallery.

The event also celebrated TEG’s 25th birthday and it was good to see many familiar faces as well as welcoming several new members who were attending a Marketplace for the first time.  The winner of our birthday booking prize was Katherine Weldon of East Lothian Council Museums Service, who received a  bottle of champagne kindly donated by TESS Demountable.

About our host:

Leeds City Museum: Leeds’ exciting and much anticipated state-of-the-art City Museum opened its doors on 13 September 2008. The impressive museum, converted from the historic listed former Civic Institute building in Millennium Square, is spread over four floors, with five major galleries, a central arena and special exhibitions space while a purpose-built discovery centre is also located near Clarence Dock. It is the first purpose-built home for Leeds's artefacts since bombing in 1941 damaged the city’s original museum on Park Lane.
