The conference will be held in Canberra, 18-21 May 2020, at the National Convention Centre.

The theme for the conference is 'Creating the Future: Trust. Diversity. Imagination'. Canberra 2020 will invite new perspectives on the museum and gallery sector’s role in creating the future. AMaGA are looking forward to an ambitious, imaginative and outward-looking program that questions assumptions. This is your chance to share your ideas about addressing our sector’s impact on communities, ecologies and economies and building trust and empathy in the context of global challenges.

AMaGA are particularly looking for papers that bring intergenerational, interdisciplinary, cross-platform, cross-cultural and intersectional perspectives to the conference. AMaGA are also looking for new perspectives on the work of the sector and its role in shaping our future society and world.
