Annette Day, Head of Content Delivery, Museum of London

Alex Werner, Lead Curator, New Museum at the Museum of London

In conversation with Matthew Davies, Professor of Urban History and Executive Dean, School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy, Birkbeck, University of London

This meeting of the seminar will focus on the opportunities and challenges involved in the development of the new Museum of London, which will move to a new site in the General Market buildings in West Smithfield in 2023. Through presentations and a panel discussion, the seminar will explore some of the thinking behind the Museum masterplan, the use of the new spaces, the opening up of the Museum’s collections, and the engagement with Londoners to communicate the stories of people and places across more than 2,000 years of the capital’s history.
