We are pleased to have participated in The Museums Association Annual Conference & Exhibition held on November 5th/6th in Birmingham. This is Europe’s leading museum and heritage event and the largest event of its kind for museum and heritage professionals in Europe with over 1,500 attendees from all over the world coming together to discuss the key issues affecting the sector.

  • Irena presented a panel convened by Derby Museums Silk Mill http://www.derbymuseums.org/thesilkmill/  titled Head, Heart, Hands – Think , Feel, Do . The panel reflected on the issues of co-production learned through the successful Re-Make The Museum pilot that led to an award of £9.4 Million grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and a contribution of £4million for Derby City Council towards the development of Silk Mill: Museum of Making.
  • The panel was chaired by Daniel Martin from Silk Mill, with Helen Charman, Director of Learning and Research at Design Museum, London and Chris Keady Curator of Making and Lifelong Learning Programmer at Silk Mill as panelists.
