South West Fed Conference 2020 

'Interpreting, Curating and Combatting the Climate Emergency'


EVENT MOVED ONLINE WITH NEW DATE & PRICES: 

In March, we announced that the South West Fed Conference 2020 was to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve listened to advice from the Government, and our Board has reflected on what would be safe and responsible even as social distancing rules are relaxed in the coming months. The health and safety of staff, attendees and volunteers is our priority.

We also recognise that the sector must do its best to bounce back and we need to continue to support that by meeting our mission of “creating opportunities to connect and inspire the heritage community across the South West, for the benefit of organisations and their audiences.”. For those reasons, our Board has made the decision to take the conference digital in the Autumn (1 & 2 October).

About the conference


The 2020 conference theme is ‘Interpreting, Curating and Combatting the Climate Emergency’, and will also discuss life after/with the COVID-19 pandemic. It will focus on the different ways the museums and heritage sector can respond to the challenges posed by climate change and COVID-19.

Sessions will explore and discuss how museums and heritage sites can contribute to increasing public awareness and civic engagement, and how we can develop sustainable and safe practices which will mitigate and adapt to the climate emergency, and to the coronavirus. The event will provide inspiration and practical examples to take away and apply to your own work and the organisations you work with.

Each day will contain a combination of presentations and workshops that provide valuable CPD opportunities to consider this topic and provide examples of best practice. Please note that we will be announcing workshop options once all have been confirmed, and will be emailing to ask for your workshop choices nearer the time.

Format changes

While this is a different format to what had been planned, we are still very excited by the programme. We will continue to provide a high quality two day event with a wide range of talks and speakers – we will be updating our event pages in the coming weeks with programme updates. The format changes are as follows:

  • The conference will be hosted on Zoom - this is easy to use and enables us to have breakout rooms (support will be on hand for using Zoom)
  • The theme is still ‘Interpreting, Curating and Combatting the Climate Emergency’ but we will also be considering how the pandemic has impacted this and what it might mean for the future
  • There will be some spreading of the talks to enable screen breaks
  • You will still be able to choose workshops to join - we are looking into ways to make some or all of them available to ticket holders after the conference
