Future of Museums: Collections

22 September 2022, 1100-1600
Online, Zoom

Three years on from the publication of the Museums Association’s Empowering Collections report, how are museums using their collections in exciting, engaging and socially impactful ways? What new approaches to collections care, interpretation and display are emerging – and what trends might be on the horizon.

From the climate crisis to anti-racism work, decolonisation to co-production, this event explores how museums’ collection work continues to evolve and have a positive impact on people and places.

A full programme will be available in due course.
