Museums of all sizes are invited to join the conversation for this year’s conference hosted by the University of Cambridge Museums. With the usual representative mix of national, regional and local museum speakers we hope to provoke debate and insight into the burning issues facing the sector today.
The timetable allows for plenty of time for networking and discussion and participants are encouraged to bring their own ideas for presentation to the lunch-time “marketplace”.
