MA UK Conference 2021: Brave New World

08 November | 00:00 - 10 November | 23:59

Museums Association (UK)

 

How can museums change lives in a post-pandemic world and help society respond to the many challenges it faces?

In the past year museums proved that they can be responsive, creative and resourceful. We look at how we can build on what we have learned to emerge stronger and more relevant.

We explore how can we work effectively with communities hit hard by economic hardship and social upheaval during the pandemic. We discuss what we can do to improve people’s health and wellbeing, and give them hope and confidence in the future.

We examine the role we can play in tackling the urgent issues of our day, including the climate crisis, racism and discrimination.

We discuss how we can galvanise our collections and the expertise and passion of those who work with and for museums to engage audiences in new and exciting ways, including the transformational impact of digital technology.

This event provides the inspiration, ideas and vision we need to not only survive, but to thrive in the future.

The programme is packed with inspirational speakers from across the globe, practical advice for museums of all types and sizes to use in your work, and tours and networking events to give you contacts and the context of colleagues’ work.

In Liverpool you can expect three days of interactive and topical content, networking opportunities, social events, physical tours and practice sessions. If you can’t attend in person, joining online for some or all of the event gives you the opportunity to access the same great content at your own convenience.

For all attendees the live-streamed programme will be available on demand so people can watch sessions that they miss at a later date.
