Lates Conference 2018

Back in June 2018 Culture24 ran the UK’s first conference all about after-hours arts and heritage programming.

How do Lates build audiences and generate income? This was the topic of our first conference focused on after-hours events at museums and galleries. The sessions developed ideas presented in Culture24′s recent research.

Museum and gallery programmers, venue decision-makers and night-time economy people gathered at the National Gallery, London on 1st June.

Speakers included:

  • Kim Streets, CEO, Museums Sheffield (Keynote)
  • Neil Mendoza, Provost Elect, Oriel College, Oxford, and author of the Mendoza Review (DCMS, 2017)
  • Ashlie Hunter, Public Programmes Producer, Art Gallery of New South Wales
  • Bill Griffiths, Head of Programmes, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums
  • Aowen Jin, Artist and Social Commentator
  • Lucy Woodbridge, Head of Visitor Events, Natural History Museum
  • Ojay McDonald, CEO, Association of Town & City Management
