SPNHC 2014 takes shape in Cardiff
February 02, 2013
The Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales (www.museumwales.ac.uk) and partners are honoured to be hosting the 29th SPNHC Annual General Meeting. The dates will be for the week of the 22nd to the 28th June 2014. The talks, tradeshow and democamp will be held at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre (www.wmc.org.uk). We envisage the conference will follow the usual pattern of the SPNHC annual meeting, and should be a fine mix of fieldtrips, presentations, workshops and socials.
The overall theme of the conference will be ‘Historic Collections: A resource for the future’ which we feel will be an opportunity to link the collections at the heart of our institutions to the demands and uses these collections are meeting in the modern world. In addition there will be range of other themed and open sessions. The programme for the conference is already starting to take shape with offers to host sessions, demos and workshops. However we are still very keen to receive further offers and ideas for the conference.
Over the course of the coming months we will be endeavour to bring together the web and social media sites for the conference, but in the meantime please feel free to contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org, over anything SPNHC 2014 related.
We look forward to offering a warm ‘croeso i Gymru’ / ‘welcome to Wales’ in 2014!
