MP seminar to explore new legal requirements and technology
The Museums Association (MA) is running a Museum Practice seminar next month exploring the impact of new legislation and technological innovations on museum lighting today.

Bright ideas: New developments in museum lighting will offer attendees an unmissable opportunity to find out more about how new EU legislation on lighting will affect them and explore the latest research into LEDs and colour.

Practical presentations will examine the use of daylight in galleries and the conservation challenges around light-sensitive displays.

The event will be chaired by Jill Entwistle, editor of Lighting Journal. A line-up of expert speakers has been confirmed, including David Saunders, keeper of the department of conservation and research at the British Museum, and Stephen Cannon-Brookes, architectural lighting consultant.

The seminar is ideal for anyone with an interest in lighting, including museum directors and managers, facilities and buildings managers, curators, designers and conservators.

It takes place at the Royal College of Surgeons in London on 30 April 2014.
