2019 Working Internationally Conference: Working Together to Achieve More
At a time when it appears that the world is becoming more fragmented and nationalist agendas are gaining prominence, it is important to consider the role that international networks will have in supporting cross-border collaborations and partnerships. The 2019 Working Internationally Conference will explore the power of networks to address global problems, facilitate collective problem solving, increase knowledge sharing and transparency, and promote social cohesion.
We will also hear about the great international work carried out by ICOM UK members. A series of case studies providing ‘how to’ advice on different types of international projects and activities will be offered during our 5-minute ‘Flash Session’ and there will be an entire session dedicated to international touring exhibitions.
As the UK is scheduled to leave the EU on 29 March, two weeks after the conference, we will be convening a panel of museum experts to speak about imminent challenges and opportunities to the UK museum sector.
The day will be interspersed with opportunities for formal and informal networking with colleagues.
