National Conference

From 4 -7 June 2018, MA (Vic) hosted the Museums Galleries Australia National Conference at the Meat Market, North Melbourne.

About the Conference

The theme was  ‘Agents of Change’ with debate, discussion, workshops and masterclasses on provocative ideas, disruptive practice and how to make an impact in today's challenging environment.  

Conference Snapshot Survey Results 

Our thanks to our members and supporters who gave us feedback following the national museums and galleries conference in June. We ran two snapshot surveys: one for attendees, and one for non-attendees, to ask for some detail about why they didn’t attend.
