MDY Sponsored Place at MA Conference 2018

Museum Development Yorkshire is pleased to announce that it is sponsoring one FREE place at this year’s MA Conference in Belfast.

The 2018 national conference will provide a great opportunity to explore how museums can be socially and politically engaged organisations. The conference theme is ‘dissent’, and many of the sessions will focus on how museums are presenting, reacting to and engaging with dissent.

A full programme can be found here

Museum Development Yorkshire recognises that it is important for museum professionals to connect with colleagues through conferences and networking events, but also how stretched budgets can be when it comes to professional development. This year we will cover the conference fee but not travel or accommodation.

If you would like a free place then you need to:
*Commit to attending the whole conference
*Share your learning with regional colleagues

How to apply
The MDY sponsored places are open to anyone working or volunteering in an Accredited or ‘Working Towards’ museum in Yorkshire and the Humber. We cannot support members of staff of National Portfolio Organisations or DCMS sponsored National Museums. We will prioritise museums that have ‘Full’ or ‘Provisional’ Accreditation.

The deadline for expressions of interest is 23:59 on Sunday 2nd September.
