Museums have long enjoyed a fruitful relationship with primary and secondary schools, working with the education sector to develop engaging content and vital resources for both on and off-site workshops. This event looks at the current landscape for school programmes, and explores how museums might adapt their programmes into the future.

The programme includes panel discussions, case studies and practice-led presentations on a diverse range of issues.

This event is aimed at educational and museum professionals in all four UK nations.

A full programme will be available in due course.

Please note that this event will be recorded and available exclusively to delegates for three months. After that time, it will be made available to members on the Museums Association website.

We aim to present a diverse range of speakers from across the UK and internationally at our one-day conferences. If you are interested in speaking at one of our events, or have a project you’d like to see explored, please tell us more by emailing the Events Team.
