Attingham Trust update

Since 2005 we have annually sponsored a European student to attend the Attingham Trust Summer School in the UK.
This is a three-week intensive course which explores country houses, their collections and their relation to their landscape, all in the context of todays world. Aimed at professional in the field of collections and display it attracts an interesting selection of people all with different experiences and knowledge. The responses to the course are always inspirational and reinforce the excellence of the program which includes field specialists and privileged visits to Britain's heritage houses.
The 2010 course will run from 2nd-20th July and will give the scholars an opportunity to visit 25 historic houses.
The Attingham Trust run two other annual courses; the Royal Collection Studies course and the Study Program. These are shorter more specialised programs.
