Staff and volunteers from all museums in the East of England, large and small, are invited to attend the 3rd Annual SHARE Museums East Conference.
In the true spirit of SHARE this event will bring together colleagues across the museum sector to make connections and learn from one another.
The theme this year is Museums: Who Do We Think We Are?
Keynote Speaker: Mark Taylor, Director, Museums Association
Chaired by Tony Butler, Director, Museum of East Anglian Life
- Steve Miller, newly appointed Head of NMAS
- Dea Birkett, Director of Kids in Museums
- Professor Tony Haydn, UEA
- Tom Perrett, Collections and Exhibitions Manger, The Higgins Bedford
How does caring for collections sit beside an increasing need to generate income?
What role should museums play in their community, and how?
Should we seek to educate or entertain?
In a programme designed for active participation the current challenges and opportunities that museums face will be discussed and debated by representatives of museums of all types.
The lunchtime SHARE marketplace will encourage further contributions from delegates.
A full programme is available to download here.
This event is fully booked.
