Museums Aotearoa Regional Forums - 2015

At our regional forums in 2013 and 2014 you told us that you wanted more opportunities to get together with your colleagues. Now in our third year of running these meetings, they have become a part of our MA annual cycle.

We are inviting our members - and prospective members - to get together for some 'Pitopito Kōrero' - short talks and networking.

We have set dates for many of these forums so check out below if there will be one in your area and 'save the date'. We are trying to get around to areas that we may have missed in previous rounds.

Most of the forums will include a session on the MA Code of Ethics, an opportunity to look at exactly what it says and how you can use it as a practical tool. We are also inviting people to do short 'pecha kucha' style presentations so please get in touch with us if you have an interesting project or some new thinking you would like to share.

The forums are open to anyone who is working in or with a public art gallery or museum - staff, volunteers and board/committee members. All are welcome, whether or not your organisation is a member of Museums Aotearoa.

Please register your interest so we can arrange suitable venues and catering.

Upcoming Forums:

All forums will include a morning/afternoon tea or a light lunch with some short presentations and an informal networking/workshop session.
We will circulate more details as topics/presenters are confirmed.
