You are warmly invited to attend the British Museum’s National Programmes 2019 Conference on Monday 4 November. The conference will explore equality and diversity in museum practice across the UK – highlighting issues of representation, authority and power with particular focus on disability, class, gender, race and sexuality.
Bonnie Greer has recently been announced as the keynote speaker. Playwright, novelist, critic, broadcaster and former British Museum Trustee, Bonnie is passionate about making positive change in the museum sector. Bonnie’s keynote address will be followed by over 35 different sessions, led by speakers and contributors from across the UK.
This event is open to anyone working in or with museums: museum professionals, representatives of sector bodies, community partner organisations and people working in the arts, cultural heritage and creative industries with a relevance to the museum sector, and others working in these fields including charities and third-sector organisations, freelance practitioners, artists, activists, funders, academics and early-career scholars. Emerging museum practitioners are particularly encouraged to take part.
Tickets are available to purchase online via the British Museum’s website, priced at £15. Thanks to the support of the Vivmar Foundation, £8 concessions tickets are available for anyone who needs them, as well as a limited number of travel bursaries for those who would otherwise be unable to attend.
