About the Conference
We live in an age of division and discord, with many communities riven by political differences, social inequalities and, in some cases, conflict and its legacy.
This conference will explore the role of museums as important shared spaces, where differences can be ethically discussed and represented, and areas of commonality identified and valued.
Hear from museum professionals from the island of Ireland, the UK and the global museum community, in a city that has been damaged by division but through the ongoing social peace process is embracing the opportunities of the present and looking to a more positive future.
See Eventbrite listing for programme.
Tickets range from £40 to £250 with discounts available for students and members.
Tickets are available from Eventbrite.
