Dear all,

I would like to invite you on January the 9th, 2019 to participate in the Symposium The Future of Museums and Civil Society after Brexit at the Ceredigion Museum in Aberystwyth. This forum brings different voices together to discuss the financial and cultural impact of Brexit for representing and performing identity in cultural institutions and discuss future scenarios.

The event links theory with practice by bringing academics together with curators, administrators, and visitor groups to work through dilemmas that arise when developing exhibitions and managing collections.

Details

Session I: Brexit, austerity and museums: reflections from Wales
Talk by Bella Dicks (Cardiff University and National Museum Wales) moderated by Gareth Hoskins (Aberystwyth University)

In this session we discuss the current challenges faced by the museum sector in Wales by placing them in the context of changes in cultural policy and funding in the UK over the past 20 years. The talk will explore how these changes have affected museums, especially in Wales, and consider the barriers and difficulties of enhancing and extending meaningful cultural participation in their context. Rather than offering answers, we hope the talk will encourage a collective debate in assessing where we are now and how we best prepare for the future, as we face yet another round of austerity led and Brexit dependent uncertainty in 2019.

Session II: Museums, a non-representational politics
Talk by Helen Graham (Centre for Critical Studies in Museums, Galleries and Heritage, University of Leeds) moderated by Alice Briggs (Ceredigion Museum) 

This session proposes a non-representational political and epistemic approach for museums. After examining different trajectories that have been employed in the museum sector in the UK to better engage more people from all demographics, we turn to a fundamentally different political logics offered by participation, which is nonrepresentational. Drawing on an ongoing action research project with the Bradford’s National Museum undertaken by Helen Graham, we aim to collectively explore new decision-making models, which combine professional, participatory and action-led forms of decision. We will also discuss exhibitions as forms of action inquiry for a wider systemic political and social change.

Schedule:
09.30 - Welcome and introduction: Managing museums in times of austerity 
Carrie Canham (Curator at Ceredigion Museum)
