The Victorian Museums & Galleries Forum is a one-day event dedicated to discussing trending topics in the museum and gallery sector. It takes place every other year in Melbourne, alternating with our State Conference in regional Victoria.
In 2019 the Victorian Museums & Galleries Forum will be held on Tuesday 15 October, 2019 at Deakin Downtown, Melbourne. The 'Healthy Museum' theme is at the forefront of new learning and research, especially around the themes of health, happiness, sustainability, education and well-being.
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.
The Victorian Museums & Galleries Forum will bring together staff and volunteers from the Victorian museum and gallery sector, museum studies and art curatorship students, and the national and international arts and culture community to hear from museum and gallery professionals from around the world, and learn about how museums and galleries can promote health and well-being.
We are pleased to announce our first speakers at the Forum.
