Glucksman Director gives keynote at global CoMuseum gathering

Although the global community seems to slowly exit the pandemic crisis, it still faces increasing challenges with regional conflicts, the effects of the climate crisis, economic and financial instability, and social injustice. However, these crises and recovery periods present an opportunity for mobilisation, change and innovation – for humans, institutions, societies, democracies, economies and ecologies.

What is the role of art and culture in this recovery? Is now the time to demonstrate how and why culture matters? These questions are the focus of the 2022 CoMuseum conference in Athens, a global gathering of leading arts professionals to reflect on international cultural matters. 

Director of the Glucksman, Fiona Kearney, is giving a keynote presentation on the award-winning Creative Agency work developed by the Glucksman that empowers communities through contemporary arts practices, and a workshop on the Glucksman approach to commissioning as part of our Art Library initiative. Her participation is supported by the British Council who along with the Benaki Museum and US Embassy in Athens are co-founders of the conference.

CoMuseum is presented in hybrid format this year so you can register online and participate from Ireland.
