Museums Association hub

Come and meet the team behind your Association's work. Talk to staff, regional and national reps and board members about policy and advocacy, our funding programmes, professional development, membership and lots more.

Festival of Change  

Dissent is often serious, but it can also be playful, creative and provocative. The Festival of Change will create spaces at the conference that give us all permission to have conversations that we wouldn’t normally have about what needs to change.

The festival embodies the mission of Transformers – the workforce initiative to encourage radical change in museums. Be prepared to be challenged, to engage in debate, explore your creativity and make change happen.

Networks hub

Meet other sector organisations.
