MGA 2019 Alice Springs

Call for Abstracts, Museums Galleries Australia National Conference 2019 program

Submit an abstract to be part of the Museums Galleries Australia National Conference 2019 program.

The conference will be held in Alice Springs from 13 to 17 May at two fantastic venues, the Araluen Arts Centre and the Alice Springs Convention Centre.

This year, we have designed this conference with curated plenary and parallel sessions, and a mixture of invited plenary speakers, presentations by members, and outstanding keynote speakers.

There has also been an increase in lightning sessions, as they provide more presentation opportunities, improved energy and variety, and a chance to showcase innovative aspects of projects.

The theme for MGA2019 is At the Centre: Our People, Our Places, Our Practices which will investigate how museums and galleries are situated at the very centre of national conversations about identity, communities and relevance, our diverse public, and the way we are deeply implicated in both a local and national understanding of Australia’s past, present and shared future.
