Museum Ideas 2021 Conference: Transforming Museum Experience

Museum Ideas 2021 Conference: Transforming Museum Experience

Welcome to Museum Ideas 2021. Normally each year hundreds of museum workers from around the world meet up in-person at the Museum of London for the annual Museum Ideas conference. However, due to the pandemic we were not able to plan for the conference to be in-person this year. So, like the 2020 edition, the Museum Ideas conference this year will be online, on-demand and free-to-view with no subscription, membership or ticket required.

Full programme on in-person study days and conference now available to book for 2022.

Making Museum Ideas 2021 free is a practical act of solidarity with museum workers. We hope the online talks provide a space to explore how museums can be reimagined as ethical, people focused organisations in a time of growing inequality, environmental emergency, and economic and political crisis. The online talks will be made available on 30 November 2021.

Speakers include Rachel Eve Ginsberg, Founding Director, Interaction Lab, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, NYC; Laura Pye, Director, National Museums Liverpool; Pailagi Jaimin Pandya, Curator, Mackenzie House Museum, Toronto; Reyahn King, Chief Executive, York Museums; Katy Ashton, Director, People’s History Museum; Rosie Stanbury, Head of Public Programmes, Wellcome Collection; and Tony Butler, Executive Director, Derby Museums.
