MuseumNext Australia 2018

MuseumNext is a global conference series on the future of museums. Since 2009, it has brought together museum leaders from around the world to ask ‘what’s next for museums?’ Following the first MuseumNext event in Australia, held in Melbourne in February 2017, organisers are now preparing a new three-day event due to be held in Brisbane on 19-21 March 2018. MuseumNext Australia will take place in Brisbane’s culture precinct, which brings together Queensland Museum, Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery of Modern Art, Queensland Performing Arts Centre, Queensland Conservatorium and the State Library of Queensland. The programme of the event includes several visits and tours of local facilities, as well as workshops, particularly on the first day. A range of project presentations, case studies and discussions will be held thereafter, by speakers from Australia, Canada, France, Mexico, New Zealand, the UK and the US. Interviews with speakers are regularly presented on MuseumNext's blog. A full programme is available at Registration for MuseumNext Australia 2018 is now open. For additional information, please visit
