When: 12 December 2019, 10.30am – 4.30pm

Where: Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff

How Much: £55.00 – £195.00

There are nearly 14 million disabled people living in the UK, but many museums continue to struggle to welcome them as visitors, volunteers and members of the workforce. What can be done to address disabled access, participation and representation? How can individuals and organisations embed inclusive practice?

Through a series of practical talks as well as interactive discussion, debate and exchange, this one-day Museums Association conference explores how museums can become truly inclusive spaces and representational platforms, and champion equality at every level.

This event is for anyone who is working towards diversity and inclusion at a museum or relevant organisation.
