Museum Ideas 2018, London, 1-5 October. 5 days of workshops, performances, special events, an exclusive study day at the National Maritime Museum and the essential Museum Ideas international conference at the Museum of London. Early-bird registration now open

The main Museum Ideas conference takes place on Thursday 4 October at the Museum of London and is designed so it can be attended as a standalone event. So, if you’re on a tight schedule and can only put one day aside, the main conference on Thursday will deliver an international programme of innovative ideas, insights and inspiration.

If you have more time you are invited to take part in 4 days of additional events – including an exclusive study day at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich on Wednesday 3 October – and a host of workshops and special events. You will be sent the full 5-day programme so you can book on to the events that are most of interest to you.

“A conference for mind expanding conversations and international networking with a platform for shared discussions” – Martin Payne, The British Museum

Explore the ideas shaping the future of museums with pioneering thinking about digital, collections, audiences, participation and social impact. Each year Museum Ideas brings together a group of fascinating speakers and challenges them to share innovative 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 contributors along with their desire to share valuable expertise and experience.

You can expect an international speaker line-up and audience. Last year we welcomed speakers from South Africa, Argentina, Hong Kong, the US and Europe. This year the conference features speakers from India, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, the United States and Europe. Now in its seventh year, Museum Ideas welcomes hundreds of leading museum professionals from around the world. Delegates from over 20 countries took part in the 2017 conference.

Register for Museum Ideas 2018 for a packed schedule of essential talks, valuable workshops and study visits, and the opportunity to make exciting new connections. With fresh insights you can take directly back to your team, the conference will add tremendous value to your current work and is an active investment in the future and what you choose to do next.
