IMA Annual Conference

2022 IMA Annual Conference

About the conference

We hold our main annual conference, the most significant event for the Irish museum community, in a different location across Ireland each year. 

A themed conference, it both informs and is informed by the overall programme of the IMA, reflecting issues of interest to the Irish museums community and the wider cultural sector.

It presents an opportunity for museum professionals, academics, and practitioners from the wider cultural landscape to network, share knowledge and expertise, and influence the development of the sector.


The 2023 Irish Museums Association Annual Conference, Influencing Museums, will be held at Ulster University Magee Campus, Derry~Londonderry, on the 8 & 9 September 2023.
