Description

The theme for the Museums Association Annual Conference and Exhibition 2019 is Sustainable and Ethical Museums in a Globalised World.

This is linked to current social and political upheaval, demographic changes, rising inequalities and climate change. Museums are a strong position to encourage and facilitate debate about these challenging issues.

The conference will look at how the sector can help to create a more sustainable world, how it can communicate challenges such as poverty and climate change to audiences, and how museums can support campaigns that are working for a fairer and more sustainable society.

Furthermore, it will explore what the environmentally, financially and socially sustainable museum of the future might look like. How can institutions adapt to a rapidly changing world and what of kind leadership is needed in the sector to make change possible?

In the age of globalisation, it is more important than ever for museums to have ethics at their core. The conference will also interrogate the ethical implications of the international partnerships we seek to develop, how we confront the legacies of empire, and the role of global tourism in a more sustainable world.

The conference takes place on 3-5 October at the Brighton Centre.
