This year’s SHARE Conference will take place on 21 November 2016, on the theme of Place Making.
Place-making features strongly in the Government’s Cultural White Paper. It is all about strengthening the connection between people and the places they live in, work in and visit. Place-making is a collaborative process in which organisations contribute to social and economic benefits, such as health and welfare projects, educational projects, and the economic contribution of tourism. Simply put, people and organisations come together to create a better place in which to live – one with a unique sense of place.
Museums, from the smallest to the largest, are uniquely placed to contribute to the place-making agenda. A variety of speakers in the morning will share their thoughts and experiences, including:
- Paul Bristow, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Arts Council England
- Ivan Cutting, Artistic Director, Eastern Angles Theatre
- Lorna O’Brien, Museum Manager, Museum of Cambridge
- Colin Stott, Eastern Area Museums Learning Manager, Norfolk Museums Service
- Sarah Plumb, University of Leicester
Lunch will then be provided, along with a chance to visit the new National Heritage Centre of Horseracing & Sporting Art, and browse our museums marketplace. Robyn Llewellyn will then deliver our afternoon keynote speech, followed by a range of breakout sessions:
- Robyn Llewellyn, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund, East of England
- Tabitha Runacres & Robert MacGibbon, The Long Shop
- Mark Bills, Gainsborough’s House
- David Cain, Eighth in the East
- Karen Thomas & Sarah Plumb, Kettle’s Yard
- Debbie Thomas, Museum of Power
- Steph Potts & Laura Crossley, Museums Norfolk
We are delighted that the National Horseracing Museum will be hosting this year’s conference at the Jockey Club Rooms in Newmarket, Suffolk. The Jockey Club Rooms are a short walk from the museum, and there will the opportunity to see the newly reopened galleries during the event.
