Museums Australia National Conference 2019 are calling for abstracts. The conference will be held in Alice Springs from 13 – 17 May 2019 at two venues, the Araluen Arts Centre and the Alice Springs Convention Centre.
The conference has been designed with curated plenary and parallel sessions, and a mixture of invited plenary speakers, presentations by members, and keynote speakers.
There has also been an increase in lightning sessions, to provide more presentation opportunities and a chance to showcase projects.
The theme for MGA2019 is At the Centre: Our People, Our Places, Our Practices which will investigate how museums and galleries are situated at the very centre of national conversations about identity, communities and relevance, our diverse public, and the way we are deeply implicated in both a local and national understanding of Australia’s past, present and shared future.
