Only 6 weeks until the 14th edition of Communicating the Museum Conference (CTM14) kicks off in Sydney. Get your registrations in quickly as spaces are limited! Register now to benefit from the special September rate.

CTM14 is widely recognized as a rare opportunity for peers across the globe to meet, exchange ideas, be inspired by experts from a variety of industries and be updated on current issues and trends.

Communicating the Museum is excited to welcome the MUSEUM OF OLD & NEW ART (MONA) to the CTM14 Conference Programme. Delegates are invited to visit MONA in Hobart, Tasmania for a 1-day supplementary tour on the 12th November. Why not finish your CTM14 experience with a bang!
MONA is Australia’s largest private museum and houses a diverse collection that ranges from ancient Egyptian mummies to some of the world’s most infamous and thought-provoking contemporary art. Click here for PROGRAMME AND TRAVEL details.


CTM is also thrilled to announce that Professor Adrian Franklin, Anthropologist and Professor of Sociology at the University of Tasmania has jumped on the CTM14 bandwagon and will be presenting a keynote on MONA in Sydney on 5th November.

Highlights from Adrian’s talk include:

  • Why did David Walsh attempt to produce the ultimate ‘anti-museum’?
  • How is MONA’s museology distinguished from conventional museums of art?
  • Why did MONA become the darling of the art world within three months of opening
  • How does visitor experience differ at MONA and why are its museum tours up to six times longer than in conventional museums?  How has it made ‘museum fatigue’ a thing of the past?
  • How has MONA negotiated a new role for the private museum and how where is it heading now?

Secure your seat now to hear Adrian’s provocative talk and ask your own questions.

More than 150 attendees are already confirmed, including:  BBC, International Olympic Committee, J. Paul Getty Museum, KPMG Australia, Living Labs Germany, The Australian Government’s Ministry for the Arts Department, Museum of Contemporary Art and Design (Phillipines), Museum of Modern Art, Norsk Teknisk Museum, TATE, Tharu Cultural Museum & Research Center, The Art Newspaper China, Vietnam National Museum of History and the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority plus many more.
