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.

TEG Seminar

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of TESS Demountable the Touring Exhibitions Group are continuing our successful seminar programme into 2010 and 2011 and begin programme with Promoting Touring Exhibitions on Friday 22nd October 2010. Promoting Touring Exhibitions will provide delegates with an introduction to marketing techniques and strategies, looking at how one can identify key target audiences and deliver your product to them.
The day will explore both how to promote exhibitions for hire and also how to market the hired exhibition to the general public in the host venue.
Consisting of a mixture of practical advice and case studies it will be excellent opportunity to discover new marketing skills, brush up on your existing ones, and network with other people and organisations in the exhibitions world.

The seminar will run between 1000 (0930 registration) and 1630 at the Gas Hall, Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. It is only £45 for TEG members (only £80 non members), including lunch and course papers. To book a place please visit the TEG website.

There will be two more seminars following this, International Touring Exhibitions which will take place at TEG’s annual Marketplace, and Partnerships and Collaborative Working in Touring Exhibitions which is scheduled for May 2011.

Our seminars are great opportunity to learn new skills and knowledge, or refresh existing skills. They also provide an affordable and invaluable opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from the touring exhibitions world.
