Museums Association Conference & Exhibition 2018
8 November @ 9:00 am - 10 November @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
The theme for the 2018 conference is: Dissent: Inspiring Hope – Embracing Change.
“The conference will focus on having the courage to challenge traditional thinking to transform museums and society,” says Simon Stephens, the MA’s head of publications and events.
“How can we foster radical ideas that defy the norm? Which networks and individuals develop these ideas and how can we ensure that their voices are heard and valued in our work? And who are the dissenters from outside museums that can provoke, inspire and challenge us?
“Belfast 2018 will showcase inspiring work from across the world that places museums at the heart of their communities and transforms people’s lives. It will highlight the role all museums can play standing with their communities as they encourage activism and promote positive social change…”
