Transformation.  Innovation.  Changemaking.

Thursday 15 July to Friday 16 July 2021

On the shores of Lake Macquarie, NSW

We invite you to attend Lake Mac GLAM 2021

We are excited to be spearheading the return of face-to-face learning and networking for GLAM sector practitioners, change agents and volunteers working within Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums!

Lake Mac GLAM is a multi-day conference that showcases the latest innovations and initiatives to enhance the creation and delivery of engaging cultural experiences at your institution.

Lake Mac GLAM is designed to leave you informed, inspired and equipped to integrate new innovations into your current programming.

Delivered through a combination of presentations and workshops, experts and attendees will explore together the following topics:

  • Indigenous engagement and collections,
  • innovation and digital technology in GLAM,
  • diversity and inclusion,
  • conservation,
  • digital placemaking and
  • online events.

This year’s keynote will be delivered by Dr Terri Janke, who will speak to First Nations: A Roadmap for Enhancing Indigenous Engagement in Museums and Galleries. This address will include a discussion on how regional organisations (including local councils) can build trust, bridge gaps and ensure authenticity in arts and cultural programming.

Other program highlights will be delivered by industry-leading speakers from a diverse range of institutions and backgrounds from:

  • Sydney Living Museums
  • City of Melbourne Libraries
  • Accessible Arts
  • The University of Newcastle
  • The University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Attendees will also be treated to an exclusive look at Lake Macquarie's newest cultural facility, the Multi-Arts Place / mima (MAP) as well as a private reception and curator talk at the Museum of Art and Culture (MAC).
