Conference 2023: The Power of Museums image

How can we create a new vision for the sector?
This hybrid annual Conference 2023 will be held at The Glasshouse (formerly the Sage Gateshead) on 7-9 November 2023, and will also be available online for remote attendees.
The largest event of its kind in Europe, our annual conference brings together speakers from across the globe for a wide range of sessions covering practical advice and big ideas in workshops, spotlight sessions, networking and more.
Our collections, buildings and people have the power to inspire, engage and enrich the communities that we serve. But with museums facing multiple financial, ethical and practical challenges, we need a new vision for the sector that will enable us to make the most of these opportunities.
Join us in person or online as we discuss the principles, beliefs and values that can guide us in our mission to support museums to be relevant, impactful and meaningful. For those attending in person, you’ll also get the chance to experience Newcastle-Gateshead’s world-class culture offer through our evening social events and museum tours.
We’ll explore how we can help our communities flourish by having a positive impact on health and wellbeing, placemaking, economic regeneration and by providing space to reflect on the pressing issues that we face. The cost of living crisis, discrimination and climate change are all having an impact on our communities. What do people need from us in times of upheaval and change?
We look forward to welcoming you to the wonderful Newcastle-Gateshead, whether in person or online.
