MAG Bulletin copy deadline

 

Members are reminded that the copy deadline for the next MAG Bulletin is 8 May. If you wish to submit material for the Bulletin, please contact Mark Littlewood asap. Please let Mark know if your article or news is likely to be a few days late – it isn’t normally a problem.

 

Contributions from all members are very much welcomed.

 

European Maritime Day Stakeholder Conference

 

Is to be held in Rome on 18-20 May. Workshop 2 on 19 May is entitled ‘Raising awareness of common maritime heritage as a cultural pillar of the integrated maritime policy’. It features a number of speakers, including Catherine Perepelytsya of Medway Council.

 

2nd International Symposium on Occupational Scientific Diving

 

Takes place from the 6-8 October 2009 and is being hosted by the University of Helsinki in Finland.

 

Funding cuts

 

As a result of last week’s budget, DCMS is expected to save £168m over the next three years. This and the projected local government ‘efficiency savings’ may be bad news for those seeking government funding of maritime heritage projects.
