Reading Museum, Reading Town Hall, The University of Reading and The Museum of English Rural Life29th and 30th June 2017
2016 has been a monumental year for the world as a whole and the effects of its events on museums are likely to be wide-ranging in their consequences. The vote for Brexit and the moves to both the left and the right of the political spectrum across the world will all have a significant effect on visitors, museums and how we adapt to stay relevant in the future. This conference will explore these themes through keynote speeches, debates and workshops with plenty of opportunities for networking and exploring the host venues further through guided tours.
