Communicating the Museum Banner

Communicating the Museum (CTM) is the world’s leading museum and galleries communications conference, which is taking place in the Southern Hemisphere for the first time. Running from 4 to 11 November 2014 between Sydney and Melbourne, CTM has announced a dynamic lineup of communications specialists and museum innovators from major museums in Europe, America, Asia and Australasia.

The theme of the 2014 conference is ‘Optimism’, covering four key topics: opportunities, collaboration, leadership and community engagement. Delegates can expect a surprising, provocative, cutting edge and challenging lineup of conversation topics and interactive seminars.

As part of the official conference program, participants will have access to a week-long program of fringe events including a number of exciting cultural tours and money-can’t-buy experiences at leading galleries and cultural institutions. The conference will bring 300-museum professionals worldwide to Australia to enjoy a dynamic showcase of Australian art world events and behind-the-scenes experiences.
