Tuesday 18 May 2021

As part of International Museum Day we are presenting "A Meeting Place: Online Global Discussions for Museum and Gallery Professionals" webinar series facilitated by British Council in partnership with ICOM UK and Museums Association for leading museum and gallery professionals around the world.

Five webinars took place from October 2020 through March 2021 where speakers explored some of the most significant topics of interest facing museum and gallery professionals today like the pivot to digital, community engagement, decolonisation, environment and sustainability and equality, diversity and inclusion.

"Championing equality, and inclusion is a step towards challenging current underrepresentation and bringing about positive change, but is this radical enough to create a culture shift and change mindsets?

"Time for Change: tackling underrepresentation to bring about innovation and equity"  webinar took place on 16 February 2021 and was hosted by Esther Fox, Head of Accentuate Programme at Screen South, Artist and Researcher in conversation with Zeina Arida, Director, Sursock Museum, Beirut; Daniel Kotowski, Visual Artist and Educator at Zachęta National Gallery of Art and the Museum of Modern Art, Warsaw; Ruth McCarthy, Artistic Director, Outburst Arts, Belfast; and Hanna Wróblewska, Director, Zachęta National Gallery of Art, Warsaw and Commissioner of the Polish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale.
