All Inclusive: Championing Accessible Museums

Date: 8 May 2024

Times: 10.00-15.00

Venue: online

Description: “Ableism – prioritising the needs of non-disabled people over disabled people – remains pervasive across the museum sector. Disabled people still face barriers in our buildings, policies and structures, and are chronically unrepresented in our workforce and collections.

All Inclusive is our annual one-day conference exploring how museums can become anti-ableist in everything that they do. Anti-ableism recognises abled privilege and actively looks to challenge and dismantle it through theory, actions and practices.  

Through provocations, case studies and panel discussions, the event explores what an anti-ableist museum might look like in practice.

We will elevate the perspectives of D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people as part of this event.

A full programme will be available in due course.

Please note that this event will be recorded and available exclusively to delegates for three months. After that time, it will be made available to members on the Museums Association website.

We aim to present a diverse range of speakers from across the UK and internationally at our one-day conferences. If you are interested in speaking at one of our events, or have a project you’d like to see explored, please tell us more by emailing the Events Team.

Concessionary Member – £35
