UK Museums Association Annual Conference


  • Brighton United Kingdom (map)

The theme for the 2019 Museums Association Annual Conference and Exhibition in Brighton will be "Sustainable and Ethical Museums in a Globalised World".

The conference will look at how the sector can help to create a more sustainable world, how it can communicate challenges such as poverty and climate change to audiences, and how museums can support campaigns that are working for a fairer and more sustainable society. The conference will explore what the environmentally, financially, and socially sustainable museum of the future might look like. It will also question the ethical implications of the international partnerships museums seek to develop, how museums confront the legacies of empire, and the role of global tourism in a more sustainable world. The Museums Association Conference is the biggest event of its kind in Europe for museum and heritage professionals. It showcases inspiring work from across the world that places museums at the heart of communities and transforms people's lives.

Call for papers: 3 February 2019
Price: TBC
