From one of the UK’s leading universities comes a new way to make real progress on some key issues that shape our society. Join a panel of thought leaders, and an audience of policy makers, opinion leaders and leading museums professionals as we debate ‘Musuems in the Information Age: Evolution or Extinction?’ The event will be a Question Time style debate and panelists include:
Ian Blatchford, Director, Science Museum Group;
Carole Souter CBE, Chief Executive at the Heritage Lottery Fund;
Dr Ross Parry, School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester.
Our panel is drawn from thought leaders in the sector and from significant figures in academia and politics. But at the heart of the debate is the audience. Your views are important and we’d like you to have the opportunity to shape the way in which policy is developed in the future alongside our speakers.
