'Digital Museums', 2019 NIMC forum

11 December | 10:00 - 11:00

NI Museums Council

The 2019 NI Museums Council's annual museum forum will focus on 'Digital Museums'. 

Cost: Free for NIMC members / £20 for non members

The Forum offers the opportunity to reflect on key issues and consider where the sector is currently and highlight development priorities.

This year’s topic will be ‘Digital Museums’. Digital technologies and ways of working are rapidly impacting on audience behaviour and expectations, the nature of our collections, as well as how we fulfil our missions. These areas will be explored throughout the Forum through a mix of digital interactions and more formal presentations as well as group discussions. Up to date research will be presented as well as an array of case studies; from enhancing visitor experience, digitising collections and making them available online, to managing efficient and sustainable organisations. Discussions throughout the day with peers from Northern Ireland, and across Republic of Ireland and United Kingdom will help provide insight into how we can better harness the potential of digital in the museum sector.

The NIMC Museum Forums are a great opportunity to network, hear about the latest research and case studies, discuss sector challenges and opportunities, as well as input into the direction of NIMC’s work on developing the local museum sector.

A full programme is coming soon.
