Operating policies

Following an extensive governance and procedural review, the following policies were developed by the Methodist Modern Art Collection Management Committee and taken to the Methodist Council in March 2021 for approval.  The policies reflect the requirements of the Museum Accreditation standards of best practice for the operation of the Collection - and its interpretation to promote a Methodist way of life.  They are offered here for anyone interested in hosting the Collection or individual works from it.

Along with our 'Guidance for Borrowers' (see link below) these policies are essential reading.
