Museums Talk: From the UK
Launched in 2012 by Istanbul Modern, the “Museums Talk” program aims to establish a new conversation platform between leading international museum professionals and audiences in Turkey. The program continues with the United Kingdom.
Organised in collaboration between Istanbul Modern and the British Council, “Museums Talk: From the UK” invites prominent museum professionals from eight art museums from the UK between December 2014 and April 2015.
The British Council is also collaborating with Bursa Metropolitan Municipality to repeat the talks in Bursa and bring wider audiences into a closer relationship with the UK museum professionals.
Since the foundation of the first national public museum in the world, the UK has always been a precursor in the field of museology and British institutions provide a unique know-how combining a rich heritage with innovative approaches.
Each lecture focuses on a critical topic, such as museum management, fundraising, curatorial practices, collections and archives, education programs, audience development and public relations, marketing and communication strategies, new technologies, exhibition design and museum architecture.
The events are free of charge and will be held in English with simultaneous translation into Turkish.

For talks in Bursa please note that places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. It is advisable to come early to avoid disappointment.
