A Call for Abstracts is open for the Australian Museums and Galleries Association National Conference 2022. The conference will be held in Perth, Western Australia as well being cast virtually around the world.

HEAR. US. NOW: turning conversations into action. Over four days we’ll hear from more than 50 speakers as they share their concerns for our culture and call museums and galleries into action. AMaGA 2022 will address how global issues are impacting the Arts in Australia and consider how your local activities connect to the Indian Ocean Rim communities. Delegates are invited to amplify each other’s voice, dissect the status quo, and collaborate on new models of practice. AMaGA 2022: Hear. Us. Now. will take place 14-17 June 2022 in Boorloo Perth. 

It is anticipated that over 300 delegates will attend in person from across Australia, with virtual registrations being on offer to provide greater access than ever before for international participants.
