Cultural Conversations: September 2022

Research collaborations across the lake

What makes a successful collaboration between university researchers and GLAM practitioners? How do you get started? Where can you meet collaborators and build networks? How to bridge the theory vs practice divide? What does success look like for researchers in different institutions? For the third ‘Cultural Conversations’ event experts from ANU and the GLAM sector in Canberra will share insights into how and why we do research with collections. 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.

Presented in partnership between the Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) ACT and the Humanities Research Centre (HRC) at the Australian National University. Cultural Conversations aims to create space for deeper connections between museum professionals, academics, and students in the ACT to share ideas and practice relating to the museums and galleries sector. At a bi-monthly breakfast event, local guest speakers will share their projects and research in an informal setting where guests have an opportunity to catch up, connect and network with colleagues.
