The IMA organises a themed Annual Conference in spring each year, offering an opportunity for members of the Irish museums community to meet, network and discuss issues of relevance for the Irish museum sector.
2014 Annual Conference - Museums and Memory: Challenging Histories
The IMA Annual Conference 'Museums and Memory: challenging histories' will take the 'Decade of Commemorations' as a starting point to examine how different societies and nations memorialise and remember moments in history which are of importance to the shaping of their national identities.
Invited speakers and conference participants will share their experiences and expertise on a wide range of topics, including: museums as storehouses of memory and the role of these in addressing contested and complex histories; the relationship between public history and private or personal memory; and cross-practice approaches to commemoration.
