Call for Papers Launched - MuseumNext

Call for Papers Launched

We’re pleased to announce the call for papers for MuseumNext Europe which will take place in London in June 2018.

MuseumNext was started a decade ago as a reaction to the disruption of the digital revolution.

In the years since we’ve had many disruptive ideas presented at the conference, from Nina Simon sharing her vision of co-producing museums with the public to Mike Murwaski challenging museums to embrace social action.

We’ve had robots, risk, rebels and revolution. But as we approach our tenth year, what’s the next disruption for museums both from the outside world and from within?

MuseumNext Europe 2018 will take place in South Kensington, London home to some of the world’s greatest museums. Our theme for this our tenth annual European conference will be ‘Disruptions’.

We’re now inviting proposals from our community on the theme ‘disruptions’. We are interested in opinions, case studies and practical approaches to the following :

Disrupted World
What are the disruptions that museums face in the next decade and how must they change to meet these challenges?

Disrupting Museums
How can we disrupt museums in a positive way from leadership to audience engagement to better achieve our missions?

Disrupted Communities
How are our communities changing and how can we act now to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world?

Disrupting Exhibitions
What will the exhibition of the future look like? Will technology or social change transform the museum going experience? 

If you feel that you have something to say on one of these subject, we invite you to make a proposal to speak at MuseumNext Europe.

MuseumNext follows a fast paced format of twenty minute presentations with the focus very much on actionable ideas which can positively impact the institutions in attendance.

Proposals should be submitted through this Google Form. Any questions can be addressed to kala@museumnext.com.

Please note that each presentation selected will be entitled to one conference ticket only. Additional speakers will have to purchase their conference ticket at the discounted speaker rate. Speakers are responsible for their own travel and accommodation and will not receive payment for taking part.
