The theme of the 2019 Forum is ‘The Healthy Museum’ and will bring together AMaGA members, students and the wider community to hear from museum and gallery professionals from around the world, network and discuss current issues in the sector.
The 'Healthy Museum' theme is at the forefront of new learning and research, especially around the themes of health, happiness, sustainability, education and wellbeing. The Forum aims to provide delegates with information and discussions that demonstrate how museums and galleries can create a healthier, happier future for both our sector and the wider public. The forum will address some of the critical current issues such as wellbeing, sustainability, and inclusivity in the sector.
Held on Tuesday 15 October at Deakin Downtown, the event will consist of a morning plenary session and two afternoon sessions. The program also includes a special lunchtime networking event and post-forum drinks.
Speakers include Tony Butler, Dr Caroline Butler-Bowdon, Elizabeth Cotton and Tracy Margienson with more to be annouced.
