Chair’s Welcome

Sharing the skills, knowledge and experience of working with exhibitionsPhoto of Nicola Coleby

Welcome to the TEG website. If you are looking at it for the first time, please do take time to browse our full range of activities and opportunities. TEG is here to facilitate touring exhibitions and partnership working across all cultural organisations, to provide guidance on the practicalities of touring and partnership work, and to promote good practice.

We are committed to providing professional development training and resources, and undertaking research, to support the work of our members and wider sector. This work is supported by our sponsors TESS Demountable, and undertaken in partnership with a range of organisations including Art Fund, Arts Council England (ACE) and the National Museum Directors’ Council (NMDC). This includes our Preparing to Borrow and Economics of Touring Exhibitions programmes, as well as resources such as our new Commissioning Agreement Resource and Template, and our Partnership Agreement Resource and Template. You will find more information in the Research & Resources and Training & Events sections of the website.

Please visit the news section of the website and subscribe to our e-newsletter to keep up to date with the programme’s latest developments as well as dates for training and events.

The Manual of Touring Exhibitions is available online to members, with newly consolidated chapters that provide a clear and informative guide to all aspects of touring.

TEG continues to seek contributions from members to our ongoing collection of case studies, and is interested in hearing from anyone with suggestions concerning our work for and with the sector.
