This conference will explore the role of museums, art galleries and heritage sites in inspiring learning and creativity for all.
What role will Kent and Medway's museums play in the nation's pandemic recovery? How can culture and art-based organisations use their Collection creatively to not only be exciting and engaging but have a positive impact on its people and its places. The conference will give you the opportunity to engage with your local museums and hear a showcase of examples of how a collection cannot only connect with new audiences but empower and improve the health and wellbeing of underserved and marginalised populations.
Hosted at The Amelia Scott, a ground-breaking new cultural and community space opened 28th April 2022. It combines a range of culture venues – a museum, art gallery, and library – with Tourist Information Centre, Adult Education and frontline Council Services all in one brand new building.
The conference will consist of talks from sector professionals and presentations of real-life case studies. There will also be the opportunity for a tour of The Amelia Scott, interact with the Collection inspired art commissions, participate in breakout sessions and network through facilitated discussions.
