A reminder from the Museums Association about their Conference & Exhibition 2014 being held on 9-10 October in Cardiff.
The Museums Association Conference & Exhibition is the largest event of its kind in Europe for museums and heritage professionals. Over 1,500 senior staff discuss the latest issues, discover new practice and meet the world’s leading suppliers and consultants.
The theme this year is Museums Change Lives. This year we also have a resilience room which will feature content that helps museums become more sustainable, looking at partnerships, funding and the workforce. Keynote speakers include John Griffiths AM, welsh government minister for culture and sport, Antônio Vieira, director of the Museu da Maré, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and a keynote performance Mat Fraser’s Cabinet of Curiosities: how disability was kept in a box.
There are a host of other sessions, practical workshops and training – all developed to facilitate fresh thinking. The social events will give you the opportunity to network with colleagues at the Senedd and to see the Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales.
