National Conference Wednesday 12 November 2014 in Brighton
Brighton Museum & Art Gallery and sam-culture are hosting a one-day conference – The Politics of Participation in Museums.
As museums and museum funders develop participatory practice, ‘co-production’, ‘co-curation’, this conference will critically interrogate the challenges of this way of working and question its viability in the context of ever-shrinking funding for cultural institutions. Join Piotr Bienkowski, Helen Graham and Bernadette Lynch for lively discussions and debate.
