7 – 8 April 2022, 13:00 – 17:00 GMT each day, online

Cynefin (ku-nev-in), the evocative Welsh word, describes our relationship to the environment in which we live.  The 2022 Working Internationally Conference connects pioneering museum practice from Wales and across the UK with international museums on the local and global challenges of climate change, ageing and bridging community divides.

Over two afternoons, the online conference explores successful and award-winning museum projects designed to build better for future generations.  UK and international museum professionals will discuss how museum practice can lead and contribute to the needs of future generations.

Sessions topics include:

  • Climate Change
  • Agents of Change
  • Bridging Communities
  • ICOM UK Grant Programmes
  • New thinking around museum programming for people living with dementia
  • Career challenges facing Students and Early Career Professionals in 2022
  • Word of Mouth: Telling stories of identity in indigenous language
  • Museum Practices and Refugees
