This conference will focus on the vital role museums play in shaping public conversations and driving positive change in our society.
Join us as we collectively explore how museums can effectively speak truth to power, navigate external pressures, and lead with integrity in challenging times.
Discover strategies for addressing conflicts between museum values and stakeholder views, amplifying marginalised voices, and acknowledging historical complicity. Together, let's shape a future where museums influence, lead, and drive positive change, ensuring they remain beacons of truth and catalysts for transformation in a rapidly changing world.
