2021 Working Internationally Conference

Each year ICOM UK, in partnership with NMDC, organises the one-day Working Internationally Conference.  2021 will be a little different.  The Conference is a 3-day online event, with each day focussing on a major global issue:

  • Social Justice: Museum responses to decolonisation, restitution, Black Lives Matter, representation and youth 
  • Museums and Sustainability: Challenges of working in and responding to a changing climate 
  • The Future of Museums: Where are we now, and where do we go from here? 

The 2021 Working Internationally Conference: Shifting Landscapes, Shifting Perspectives takes place in March 2021 at a time when major global issues such as the impact of Covid-19, climate crisis, Brexit, and social justice will see museums continuing to reconsider and reimagine their roles in a global and local context, and establish new ways of working.

The conference brings together speakers from the UK and across the globe to share their insight and experience of responding to changes in the sector and the world around us.

The 2021 Working Internationally Conference is organised by ICOM UK in partnership with NMDC and with curatorial support from Barker Langham.
