“Presented in partnership with the Powerhouse Museum and supported by the NSW Government, through Destination NSW, Sydney’s conference is the first time Communicating the Museum will take place in the Southern Hemisphere, highlighting our Sate’s position as Australia’s cultural capital and home of the creative industries,” Mr Souris said.
“Communicating the Museum will offer communications professionals from arts organisations across the world a dynamic, one week conference and events program that will explore communications issues shared by museums globally in the 21st Century.
“The program will showcase NSW’s major museums and art institutions including, the Powerhouse Museum, Art Gallery of NSW, Australian Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney Opera House, and Australian National Maritime Museum.”
Founded in 2000, Communicating the Museum will include inspiring keynote speeches, engaging panel discussions and thought-provoking learning sessions from museum experts and high profile leaders in technology, business and branding. The aim is to provide a wider perspective on communications trends in non-arts arenas.
As part of the cultural conference, participants will also have access to a week-long program of fringe events in Sydney including a number of cultural tours and ‘money-can’t-buy’ experiences at leading galleries and cultural institutions.
Communicating the Museum Founder and Director, Corinne Estrada, said Sydney was the obvious choice as host venue for the 2014 conference.
“Australia is an important global player with a dynamic and thriving arts and museum sector,” Ms Estrada said. “Sydney’s proximity to Asia will ensure we are able to attract even more delegates from the Asia Pacific to create a truly international debate and exchange of ideas from museum professionals all over the world.”
