A Subject Specialist Networks Conference, London, 4-5 June 2020

Museum collections on prescription – Political rhetoric, civic responsibility or engagement opportunity?

We're delighted to be collaborating with two other professional networks on this conference, the British Art Network and the Understanding British Portraits Network. Join us to explore a wide range of collections-focussed art, health and wellbeing programmes from local, regional and national museums and galleries. The conference will facilitate learning about the research and evidence that underpins much of this work and discuss issues and challenges arising from it. We'll be issuing a Call for Papers next month to hear about your case studies, experience, and ideas around working with collections at the intersection between the museum sector's remit and other disciplines, and the developing interest in engaging with public health.
