Program unveiled for AIM 2021 conference with Culture Secretary among speakers

A varied itinerary of three days of online sessions will take place between 16and and 18and June 2021, with content ranging from hands-on best practice sharing sessions to virtual networking workshops.

As with most industry events right now, Covid looms large. The main objectives of the conference include exploring lessons learned from the pandemic and how changes imposed on the sector can be leveraged for long-term gain.

These themes will be addressed in sessions such as Leadership Challenges in Small Museums; Succession planning; Fight against inequalities; and The Future of Volunteering.

Policy questions can be posed directly to Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden, who will take part in a pre-recorded Q&A moderated by IAM President Andrew Lovett. All questions should be submitted to [email protected] by the end of May to be considered for inclusion.

Tickets are on sale now for the event, with three-day entry at £22.50 for students, £90 for non-AIM members and £45 for AIM members who get a Early Bird slot. Single-day tickets are priced at £30 for AIM members and £45 for non-members.
