Toolkit: Developing an Economic and Production Strategy for Touring Exhibitions

This toolkit provides UK museums and galleries, of all types and scales, with a framework for analysis and strategic development, to support the selection of an appropriate economic and production model for touring, to suit the particular circumstances in which they are operating.
