The Museums Association Conference & Exhibition is the largest event of its kind in Europe for museums and heritage professionals.  The theme of Brighton 2019 is Sustainable and Ethical Museums in a Globalised World. The conference looks 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. How can institutions adapt to a rapidly changing world and what of kind leadership is needed in the sector to make change possible?

TKeynote speakers include Clayton Thomas-Müller, campaigner for indigenous rights and environmental and economic justice. He is based in Winnipeg, Canada, and is a member of the Mathias Colomb Cree Nation, also known as Pukatawagan, in Northern Manitoba. He is a senior campaign specialist with 350.org, an international movement working to end the age of fossil fuels and build a world of community-led renewable energy for all.

Other sessions throughout the conference cover topics such as decolonisation, repatriation, sponsorship, curation, health and wellbeing, biodiversity, leadership, gender, workforce and diversity. There are also a host of seminars and training – all developed to facilitate fresh thinking.

 

Conference is a vital forum for debate, exchange and networking – join us for the biggest event of its kind in Europe and help shape the future of museums.
