Museum Ireland Launch and In Conversation
18 August | 12:00 - 12:40
Irish Museums Association
The Museum Ireland journal provides valuable insight into the museum sector across Ireland, capturing new thinking, museum practice and developments through articles and peer reviews of exhibitions and publications.
Join us as we launch the latest edition of Museum Ireland for Heritage Week with an online In Conversation with guest editor Dr Briony Widdis. To mark the publication (provided open-access), we will explore some of the emerging themes through the viewing of a 'Curator Choice' video and introduce the MENII Memories, MENII Voices project. This one-year public engagement project, led by a Queens University Belfast - IMA - ArtsEkta partnership, uses creative practice, auto-ethnography and oral histories working with meaningful objects to sensitively explore Northern Ireland’s entanglement with global histories of colonialism and imperialism, and the legacies and afterlives of that entanglement today.
This event is free of charge, registration is necessary to receive the online link.
