The Museum sector is great at celebrating our successes. We are also fantastic at dealing with the difficult, the unexpected, and the disastrous.

This session is focused on exploring when things went wrong or challenges presented themselves, either due to an unexpected event, random chance or a series of factors. We will look openly and honestly about what happened, how we overcame (or not) the problem and what we (and others) can learn from this. The session will feature three speakers who will share their experiences after which there will be a chance for discussion and questions. Full details of the presentations will be announced shortly. The FED AGM will follow (all members will be notified in advance with details).
