CfP: Museum Ideas 2017 - share pioneering ideas
The Museum Ideas conference explores the future of museums in the era of participatory culture and exists to share pioneering ideas and spark transformative change. The sixth annual conference will take place in early October 2017 in London. The conference organisers are particularly interested in new digital initiatives, public engagement, participatory practice and social impact.
Each year Museum-iD magazine challenges a creative group of speakers to share transformative ideas in concise, powerful talks. The aim is for delegates to be inspired by perspectives outside their own specialism and locality. What unites the conference is the quality and enthusiasm of the contributors along with their desire to share valuable expertise and experience. With a progressive attitude and international approach to professional inquiry, each year the event brings together a fascinating group of speakers and challenges them to share innovative ideas in concise, powerful talks.
