British Council, in partnership with ICOM UK and Museums Association, is organising a new series of live online conversations for leading museum and gallery professionals in the UK and around the world to connect and share experiences in the current context of Covid-19. Please join us as we conclude our series of live online conversations.
“From an unsustainable past to a sustainable future”
This event is hosted by Henry McGhie, Founder, Curating Tomorrow, who will be in conversation with Julie Decker, Director/CEO, Anchorage Museum, Alaska; Karin Weil González, Anthropologist and Heritage Officer, Wetlands Research Centre Río Cruces, Universidad Austral de Chile; Dr. Susanne Nawrath, Scientific Exhibition Manager, Klimahaus® Bremerhaven 8° Ost; and Elena Trimarchi, Learning and Engagement Manager, David Livingstone Birthplace, Blantyre, Scotland.
This discussion will be followed by an audience Q and A.
COVID19 has revealed the many vulnerabilities that existed in society, and in museums before the crisis hit. Now is a time of recovery and rehabilitation, but it is also an opportunity for reconstruction: to 'build back better' to a more sustainable future and more sustainable museums.
This webinar will explore sustainable development ideas and how they can be used to 'build back better'. We will explore how Agenda 2030 and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals can be used as a blueprint for this reconstruction, working to ensure that no community, and no museum, is 'left behind'.
