MGS Conference 2017

The MGS conference aims to offer a cost effective platform through which Scotland’s museums and galleries can network and engage with practical and relevant content, helping the sector to develop and work towards delivering against the National Strategy aims and objectives.

The overarching theme of our 2017 Conference will be Inequalities: Bridging the Gap and it will focus on the work that museums are doing to address inequalities. The day will be organised around three sub-themes:

  • Education: both formal and informal learning
  • Health: including well-being
  • Widening access: including involving and engaging communities

The programme for the day will consist of a mix of presentations, keynote and parallel sessions. The conference will create opportunities for knowledge exchange between museums and galleries and other sectors, so we would welcome submissions from people outside the museum sector, keen to share knowledge relevant to the conference themes, as well as from those within the sector.

There will be a marketplace of organisations that can support the museums sector.


Limited early bird tickets for the conference and opening networking evening are now available through Eventbrite.
