Reconnect with colleagues in person at NEMO’s European Museum Conference 2022

Registration to the 2022 edition of NEMO’s European Museum Conferenc: Innovation begins within - Resilient museums in times of disruption has opened. Join us from 9-11 October in Loulé, Portugal, to explore how museums can become more innovative, agile and flexible in a fast-changing world and to network with European and international colleagues.

It's been two years since the network and the European museum community last came together and we are looking forward to reconnecting with you. We hope that you will join the discussions, networking events, workshops and our 30th anniversary celebration.

These last years, the sector has withstood a variety of new challenges. Therefore, NEMO is dedicating the 2022 European Museum Conference to exploring how museums can become more innovative, agile and flexible in a fast-changing and challenging world.

No one can be sure of the future, but does that mean that museums cannot be futureproof? The pandemic has not only disrupted the world as we knew it, but also put a magnifying glass on the museum sector’s capacity to respond to other ongoing crises, making obvious that change is much needed. At the conference, we will look inside museums to harness existing skills and identify what is lacking. We will look outside the sector to find inspiration for new approaches, perspectives and ideas. Let’s embrace failure as a learning opportunity and have a self-critical look at the museum and its operations – including leadership, working conditions, funding and audience relevance.

We recommend that you already look into your travel plans to Loulé. Please consider green travel options such as trains or to off-set the carbon emission caused by your travel. If you will travel by plane, NEMO will organise bus shuttles from Faro airport to Loulé and to the neighbouring town Quarteira.
