Visitor Studies Group (VSG) Conference
Inspirational keynote speakers at the beginning of each day set the tone, members share skills and experiences through case studies and in a variety of interactive session formats. There is ample opportunity for networking and to gain insight into, and influence, the work of the VSG Committee.
The conference theme
The theme of the 2015 VSG Conference will be Visitor Studies: Embracing change?
Society is changing. Technology is advancing. Visitors are changing. Ways to engage with culture are changing. Funders’ expectations are changing. As Bob Dylan once said: “The times they are a’ changing.”
How are we in visitor studies embracing these changes? How is the discipline adapting and evolving? Where do we as practitioners need to reevaluate our working practices, and how do we strike that balance of preserving our current approaches whilst responding to new research techniques and methodologies? More importantly, how are we measuring the impact of these changes, and how can visitor studies ensure that it stays relevant and influences the work of colleagues, leaders, funders and other decision makers?
meSch will be represented at this conference by Areti Damala from the University of Strathclyde. She will present the first outcomes of the meSch case studies on the first day of the conference (March 4th).
