Isabel Humphreys, 26.09.2017

Julie’s Bicycle in partnership with Arts Council England and South West Museum Development Programme presents:

Stewards of our Future: Museums’ Environmental Practise Today.

What do a changing climate and environmental loss mean for museums, their operations, buildings and sites? What is their role in protecting our natural heritage and nurturing sustainable futures?

This one day event will explore environmental opportunities for museums, highlighting the unique stewardship role that museums play, through inspiring talks, best practice examples, break-out sessions, performances and panel-led discussions, as well as the presentation of a new framework of environmental practice for museums.

The day will include inspiring presentations, break out groups and an introduction to the Museums’  Environmental  Framework, developed by Julie’s Bicycle with Arts Council England support and will be delivered by the following speakers:

  • Isabel Wilson, Senior Manager, Collections and Museum  Programmes, Arts Council England
  • Henry McGhie,  Head of Collections and Curator of Zoology, Manchester Museum
  • Tony Butler, Executive Director, Derby Museums and Founder, The Happy Museum
  • Laura Coleman, Founder and Co-Director, ONCA
  • David Martin, Operations Manager,  Bristol Museums, Galleries and Archives
