We’re delighted to share that booking has now opened for AGENTS OF CHANGE: Driving and dealing with change as a freelancer in the cultural sector. For the full programme and to book please visit: www.buytickets.at/museumfreelance.
The conference is a Museum Freelance Network event for freelancers, by freelancers and will be held at Manchester Art Gallery, Manchester 10.30am – 4.30pm on Thursday, 14 March 2019.
About the conference
Speakers will share their journeys, practical lessons and tips and will explore many aspects of ‘change’ relevant to freelancers, including:
How can freelancers who aren’t attached to any particular organisation inspire and deliver change as ‘outsiders’?
How can individuals be the change they’d like to see? What power do they have?
How can freelancers be more resilient and prepare for or learn to embrace change?
How can freelancers cope and deal with change when it’s not change they were expecting, or perhaps wanting?
A welcome by Alistair Hudson, director of Manchester Art Gallery
Jim Richardson, founder, MuseumNext: The worst day of my life and other stories
Esme Ward, director of Manchester Museum
Laura Weldon, creative director, StudioLWD: Using the power of branding for positive change

This year there is also a fringe conference programme which includes a group visit to the People's History Museum and facilitated networking with coffee ‘in the sky’ at 20 Stories on Wednesday 13 March in the afternoon, and a pre-conference social at The Alchemist in the evening.
