Education in Museums: What Should Happen Next?

Three leaders in the cultural sector debate the future of education in museums and galleries.

This event is part of Museums Month.

With Loyd Grossman in the chair, three leaders in the cultural sector – Mark Jones Director of the V&A, Professor Lola Young, former Head of Culture at the Greater London Authority, and Sandy Nairne, Director of the National Portrait Gallery – discuss their views the future of education in museums and galleries.

More people visit museums and galleries than attend football matches and each year museums across London provide a greater number of educational events – for school children, university students, ESOL students, adults and individual learners. Are they enough? Do they get the experiences they want? Do Museums have educational potential still to be unlocked? Join us for a lively, enlightening debate on how education in museums and galleries will grow and change.

This lecture is arranged in association with the RSA, the Campaign for Museums and the Madeleine Mainstone Trust.

As part of the V&A’s Wednesday Late View Evening, lecture-goers can also take in the bar, live music, tours and the café. Every Wednesday the V&A is open until 22.00 with selected exhibitions and galleries remaining open.
