We are pleased to be welcoming a fantastic line up of speakers and workshops at the East Midlands Heritage Conference. Below you’ll find details of the day and how to book.
Challenging Times: The World Turned Upside Down (LAST FEW TICKETS REAMINING)
26th and 27th April, National civil War Centre
For the first time a two day conference, Challenging Times: The world turned upside down, will take place in the East Midlands looking at how museums, historic houses and heritage sites can develop their audiences and manage change. The conference will take place at the National Civil War Centre in Newark on 26th and 27th April 2017.
In a fast changing, uncertain environment, the cultural sector can offer continuity and stability that anchor people to their communities and help them explore their place in the world. This conference will explore the latest report findings from the Arts Council, National Museums Directors Council and Association for Independent Museums. External factors influencing the future of museums, such as continued reductions in public funding and the changing desires and experiences of our visitors and communities will be explored. Expert speakers, case studies and participatory workshops will suggest ways to face these challenges through marketing, fundraising and audience development.
