Event description
NatSCA's annual conference at National Museum of Ireland - Dead Interesting: Secrets of Collections Success

About this Event

The Annual Conference & AGM of the Natural Sciences Collections Association will be held between the 1st and 3rd May 2019 at the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin – Collins Barracks site.

The #NatSCA2019 conference aims to unlock the secrets of collections success by sharing how our members and colleagues in the wider sector have used collections to benefit their organisations, communities and the wider world.

We will host three themed sessions, with a focus on:

  • Collections: Reveal your collections care, research and access secrets.
  • Engagement: What are your engagement success stories and how did you make them happen?
  • Museums and Tech: How has technology helped you unlock, understand and unleash your collections?

This conference intends to offer an opportunity to share the best ideas and approaches to working with collections. We will prioritise papers that focus on sharing ideas, tools and guidance rather than simply reporting results

A full conference programme is now available here.
