2015 Working Internationally Conference

Thursday 5th March 2015

ICOM UK, the National Museum Directors' Council and York Museums Trust will host the third Working Internationally Conference on 5th March 2015 at The Hospitium in York.

This is the first time that the Conference has been located outside London, and is an opportunity for those involved in museums' international work to share information and good practice, discover new development, and network.
The programme for 2015 has five themes:

International audiences: with a focus on inbound tourists
International partnerships: working with India and Europe
Practicalities of international work: managing the risk to objects, people, finances and reputation
Putting funding packages together: case studies
Recent development: Arts Council England and international work

The cost of the one-day conference is £35 per person including morning tea and coffee, lunch and a post conference tour of the newly refurbished York Art Gallery.

Tickets and the outline of the programme are available here.

Please note that rail travel to York can be much cheaper if booked up to 12 weeks in advance.  The Hospitium, part of York Museums Trust, is located just 10 minutes' walk from York Railway Station.

The Working Internationally Regional Project will be awarding five travel bursaries of £150 (one in each ACE area) for regional and local museums and galleries who have booked a place at the Conference.

Details of the travel bursary, including how to apply, will be announced in the January 2015 WIRP e-newsletter.
