INTERCOM 2012 Conference (Sydney – 26 to 29 November)
Museums have always operated in times of change, yet the challenges and pace of change over the last five years has been unprecedented. Globalisation, environmental issues and climate change, relationships with Indigenous and creator communities, diversity of audiences, different employee mindsets, new skill sets, new media and technologies and the global financial crisis, have placed increasing pressure on the ways museums are managed and led.
The INTERCOM Conference brings together national and international experts to discuss and debate the challenges facing the museum sector.
The conference will address these issues using a mix of conference / meeting formats designed to encourage conversation, learning, intellectual stimulation and exchange of ideas.
