Collecting the ‘Now’ | IMA Conference 2018 at the RDS

The Collecting the ‘Now’ conference, presented by the Irish Museums Association, will examine how museums can ensure that their collections capture contemporary cultural changes and shifting perspectives, moving on in some cases from the collected object.

Over this two-day conference, 17 speakers from organisations such as the V&A museum, the Museum of London, National Gallery, IMMA, and National Museums Northern Ireland, will aim to explore new, conceptual, collaborative and participatory ways to collect which will produce more imaginative and diverse museum collections and exhibitions for the future.

Please note this is a rescheduled event, originally due to take place in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh on the 2-3 March 2018 and postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

Dates: 10 – 11 May 2018
Times: 10:30 – 16:45, 9:00 – 16:45
Location: RDS Dublin
Fee: €33/£29 – €140/£125
