Museums Australia pleased to announce preliminary details of the 2011 National Conference.
For the first time the 2011 Museums Australia National Conference will be held in conjunction with the National Symposium of the Interpretation Association of Australia.
MAWA and IAA(WA) will host this combined conference at the recently opened State Theatre Centre located in the Perth Cultural Centre, from 14th to 18th November 2011.
The Conference is an opportunity for colleagues across both organisations to come together to consider questions of our future in a rapidly changing world.
The Conference theme, At the Frontier: Exploring the Possibilities, will allow us to consider the future of museums, galleries, interpretive centres and cultural institutions in an ever changing world. We are facing the unknown, the unexplored, asking what’s “over the horizon”? Many explorers have already ventured forth, so now its time to bring these discoveries together; to share, to learn, to speculate on what else is “out there”. We are looking for explorers, adventurers, discoverers, researchers, seers, prophets, travellers, story-tellers and entrepreneurs to help us piece together our map for the future.
The formal call for papers will be out shortly, but in the meantime, mark you diaries, and start thinking about what you might like to present at the conference.
We hope you will join us.
