This year’s Irish Museums Association Annual Conference will be of particular interest to folks keen on exploring cultural policy, with its theme Museums in Society: Navigating Public Policy. It’s in Belfast from 27 Feburary – 1 March at the Ulster Museum. Concessions for students etc. are very generous, and it’s always a highlight of the year for me! The full programme, speakers’ biographies, abstracts, fees schedule and booking form are available on www.irishmuseums.org/annual-conference.
