Museums of the Future?
Speakers from the National Museum of Australia and the Australian National University introduce some of the key issues facing national cultural organisations and the people who work within these. We explore the institutional and personal histories, politics, and cultures of collection and museum work as well as their possible futures. Presenters will each speak for a few minutes before we open the discussion to canvass views from our wide community of practitioners in attendance at this session.
Speakers: Jilda Andrews (NMA & ANU), Katrina Grant (ANU), Kylie Message (ANU), Claire Sheridan (ANU), Libby Stewart (NMA), Kirsten Wehner (NMA).
We encourage everyone to come and contribute to this important discussion.
Registrations are required. Please note the new venue for this session (Ovolo Nishi)
