The workshop is delivered by a TEG trainer, William Brown, National Security Advisor, Carol Warner, Government Indemnity Scheme (GIS) Manager*, a member of Art Fund’s team, who will introduce the Weston Loan Programme with Art Fund, and a representative from Arts Council England, who will introduce Project Grants for Museums.
