Changing the World: Environmental Breakdown, Decolonisation and Natural Science collections
Save the date for the best annual conference, and catch up with colleagues from across the country. The Conference & AGM of the Natural Sciences Collections Association will be held on Thursday 14th & Friday 15th May 2020. National Museum Wales will be hosting the conference at two venues in Cardiff: St Fagans National Museum of History and National Museum Cardiff.
The #NatSCA2020 conference invites proposals for presentations exploring the role of natural science collections in addressing or engaging with ‘big issue’ challenges, both in the environment and in society. We would like to hear from anyone and everyone who uses natural science collections to interact with important global topics. For more details visit: https://www.natsca.org/natsca2020
