Hallmarks at Home – Borrowing from a national collection – FULLY BOOKED


Have you wanted to borrow an object from a national collection but not sure how? Join colleagues from Tate to learn first-hand how to borrow an object from their collection.

The session will break down the perceived barriers to loaning from Tate and other national collections and take you through the process step by step, with the people at Tate you’d be arranging the loan with. You’ll also have an overview of how borrowing works from most national collections, the required paperwork and costs involved so you can feel confident in borrowing from a national collection for your museum.

The speakers 



Heather Sturdy is the Head of National Partnerships at Tate. Based at Tate Liverpool, she leads a team in delivering national activity and projects that help all four of Tate’s sites to share the national collection, support the visual arts sector and work closely with partners to build skills, knowledge and capacity across a range of disciplines. The National Partnerships team co-hosts the British Art Network, as well as the Plus Tate network, the Turner Prize when it is hosted outside of London and many other national collaborations.

Who is this session for?
