THE TWELFTH EDITION OF THE ANNUAL EVENT, WILL BE HELD IN LONDON ON 12 OCTOBER 2023 ON HOW MUSEUMS CAN BE REIMAGINED AS COLLABORATIVE, CREATIVE AND CO-PRODUCED SPACES.
The conference will explore ideas shaping the future of museums with sessions on co-creation, participatory practice, community-led collecting, social justice and rethinking power and agency in the museum space.
Each year the conference brings together a deliberately eclectic group of speakers and challenges them to share transformative ideas in concise, powerful talks. The aim is for delegates to be challenged by perspectives outside their own experience, specialism and locality. What unites the conference is the passion, commitment and enthusiasm of contributors along with their desire to share valuable expertise and experience.
The 2023 conference will be chaired by Dan Hicks, Professor of Contemporary Archaeology at the University of Oxford, and Curator of World Archaeology at Pitt Rivers Museum, Oxford.
