Next Generation Summit

Virtual Conference

Trusted by leading museums

Since 2009 MuseumNext has welcomed speakers from around the world to share their work and the ideas that shape it. We’ve grown into a platform for inspiration, innovation and conversation with more than 9,000 members.

In July we’ll continue this work with a new virtual conference that will highlight young voices worth listening too.

The Next Generation Summit will bring together 30 presentations by young museum professionals, students, and freelancers to share fresh perspectives, new ideas, and original strategies guaranteed to inspire.

Highlights include presentations on accessibility, representation, workers’ rights, sustainability, audiences, and technology.

The MuseumNext conferences, whether it is live or digital, always manage to gather a great variety of people and speakers. It is always very accessible, held in a friendly including spirit which promotes good dialogue and discussions between speakers and audience. You're always looking forward to attending the next conference or gathering.

Absolutely top-notch conference. All the talks I attended were informative and valuable, giving me not only aspirational motivation but also a lot of practical, applicable advice and insights. I can't wait for next year!
