The Future of Museum and Gallery Design is co-organised by K11 Art Foundation, UKTI and the University of Leicester.
The conference has been instigated by Suzanne MacLeod (School of Museum Studies, University of Leicester), Oscar Ho (Chinese University of Hong Kong), Jonathan Hale (Department of Architecture and Built Environment, University of Nottingham) and Tricia Austin (Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London) with support from Leisure and Cultural Services Department, Hong Kong (LCSD), Hong Kong University Museum and Art Gallery and National Museums Liverpool. The event has also benefitted from the involvement of a wide range of partners including National Museum of History in Taipei, the National Taipei University of Education and the Academy of Visual Arts, Baptist University, Hong Kong.
The Future of Museum and Gallery Design is the outcome of an on-going international research-led conversation about design in museums and galleries and follows from earlier conferences and events including Creative Space (2004, University of Leicester), Narrative Space (2010, University of Leicester and University of Nottingham and 2011, University of Leicester and Chinese University of Hong Kong) and Chaos at the Museum (Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design and University of California Davis).
The Future of Museum and Gallery Design is non-profit making and all income from day passes (registrations) will go directly to the University of Leicester to support the conference costs.
