Barker Langham TO CO-CURATE ICOM UK'S 2021 WORKING INTERNATIONALLY CONFERENCE
7th December 2020
Each year, in partnership with the National Museum Directors' Council and with support from the British Council, ICOM UK organises a conference on the theme of ‘Working Internationally’. We are thrilled to announce that Barker Langham will partner with ICOM UK to co-curate the 2021 edition.
At a time when major global issues are converging, museums are establishing new ways of working – reconsidering and reimagining their roles in a global and local context. With this in mind, next year’s conference will be a little different: taking place online over three days, with each day focusing on a major global issue, from social justice to the future of museums and sustainability.
Eric Langham, BL Founder, says: “We are incredibly excited to work with ICOM UK and NMDC to explore and debate topics that will resonate long-term in our industry; thinking about our responsibilities to our communities and our planet is central to Barker Langham’s ethos and we are looking forward to assembling a series of dynamic and thought provoking sessions.”
