Event description

Description

In this two-day conference, we will be discussing the role of heritage institutions in our cities and communities, and how museums, galleries and higher education might work together for teaching, research and public engagement purposes. We will be drawing upon expertise from both the culture and heritage industry, and from academic practitioners, and the conference will serve as a space for discussion of both the benefits and challenges of such initiatives, as well as an ideas exchange on best practice.

Details of the conference programme can be found here. Each ticket registers you for one day of the conference; if you wish to attend both days, please book tickets for both the Thursday and the Friday.

This event is free to attend, although those doing so are required to cover their own travel and accomodation costs. Please find information below for those traveling to the conference by train or by car, as well as suggestions of hotels close to the venue. Lunch will not be provided, but tea and coffee will be available throughout the day. We are also aiming to host a conference dinner at a local restaurant on the evening of Thursday 19th April (paid for by delegates) as an opportunity for networking. We will be in touch closer to the time to establish interest and numbers.




Access and travel:

Attendees are asked to use the West Entrance on Leeman Road, as given on the map below. This is the most direct way to access the NRM's conference centre.

The easiest way to reach the National Railway Museum is (appropriately) by train: the museum is a five-minute walk from York Station, and is signposted from the platforms themselves. For those travelling by car, the NRM has a carpark on Leeman Road that is £10 for the full day, as well as free accessible parking closer to the main entrance. For further travel information, please see the NRM website.




Hotels:

Accommodation for 'Museums in Context and Partnership' is not provided or arranged by the conference organisers. The following hotels, however, are close to the NRM, and have been selected to suit a range of budgets:

The Grand / Principal Hotel / Park Inn (Radisson) / Hampton (Hilton) / York City (Premier Inn): North / South
