Otago Museums Aotearoa Conference host

Planning has begun for the next annual Museums Aotearoa Conference, which will be held at the Otago Museum next year.

The planning aimed to ensure it was a ''successful event'', museum officials said in a recent report to the Otago Museum Trust Board.

Otago Museum director Dr Ian Griffin had made a presentation to the Museums Aotearoa Board meeting in Wellington, and he had gained approval to move ahead with the proposed conference theme of ''Communicating Culture'', the report said.

The three-day event will begin on May 6 next year, and follows a recent move by the museum to rejoin the museums' national body, having previously not been a member for some years.
