Rural Museums Network Conference: Cultivating Change in Rural Collections

Since 2020 is all about change, the Rural Museums Network is taking the bull by the horns this October, delivering an online Conference for people who work with rural life collections that delves into some of our greatest concerns and looks for practical solutions and support.

Join us for tea break sessions between 8-23 October to hear speakers examine how rural collections and rural sites can respond to global environmental issues, Covid-19 and Black Lives Matter, as well as how the RMN supports people to get the best out of their collections.

These sessions will be run on the Zoom platform and are FREE to members and non-members.
