Although phone-in and online competitions have been pretty much rubbished in the press of late, I am certain that this competition to win tickets to see all the major exhibitions at the Tate this Summer is bona fide. Information is from the MLA newsletter...
As part of Museums and Galleries Month 2007 a survey is being carried out. Two of the major strands of this year's Museums and Galleries Month are the theme People: Who Are We? and Night of the Museum. The survey asks which one person, featured in a UK museum or gallery, you would bring back to life as in this year's hit film 'Night at the Museum'.
It also asks which object you feel represents the identity of 2007, and which object you would bring back into everyday use?
You will also be entered into a prize draw to win tickets to all of the major exhibitions at Tate this summer - Dalí & Film, Hélio Oiticica and How We Are: Photographing Britain.

The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.
