BBC seeks museum partners for Civilisation festival

The BBC is looking for museums and galleries to take part in a festival it is planning as part of Civilisations, its forthcoming series telling the story of art. The festival, which will run from 2-11 March 2018, will be designed to showcase ideas related to the programmes, which will be broadcast next spring on BBC Two. The series is inspired by Civilisation, a series about the history of western art, architecture and philosophy that was broadcast in 1969 and presented by art historian Kenneth Clark. Museums will be able to develop new events or link existing activities to the festival. Branding will be supplied and events will be listed on Museum Crush.
