Tweed Regional Gallery Accession and De-Accession Policy

We are proposing some minor updates to the Tweed Regional Gallery Accession and De-Accession Policy and we would like to invite your comments and feedback.


What updates are proposed?

  • This update is to align the Tweed Regional Gallery’s Collection Accession and De-Accession Policy with both arts industry standards and standards within Tweed Shire Council, specifically with the Tweed Regional Museum.
  • The updates create consistency and transparency around De-Accession Criteria and Disposal Procedures.
  • The updates change the 1 year ‘cooling off period’ allocated to the de-accession process to 90 days, which is consistent with the Tweed Regional Museum's policy and best practice for storage and insurance implications in regards to the management of the Collection.


What is the objective of the policy?

To develop and preserve a collection for the Tweed Regional Gallery (the Gallery) of national and regional significance.

The Tweed Regional Gallery Accession and De-Accession Policy aims to promote a greater understanding and enjoyment of the Visual Arts and Crafts through the acquisition, preservation, display and conservation of the region’s visual arts and crafts heritage.

A possible exception to the above criteria would be where a single work or group of works are offered that are of sufficient quality, excellence, national relevance and interest to merit inclusion in the Tweed Regional Gallery Collection.

Have your say

Community feedback as invited from 1 June to 8 July 2022.

It should be noted that in accordance with Council policy and the provisions of the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 – ‘GIPAA,’ confidential information contained within submissions may be released upon a request being made by a third party.
