A Public Lecture by Vanessa Kredler, UNESCO.

This presentation will introduce the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) in Cairo, which is being developed under the auspices of UNESCO. The NMEC is an ambitious new museum project that will look at Egyptian civilization from prehistory to the present day. There are huge opportunities for this emerging institution to become an agent of social change and deal with contemporary challenges.

Museums are well placed to deal with contemporary social issues, including climate change, health, and conflict resolution. The presentation will talk about opportunities at the NMEC and introduce good practice examples from other regions of the world before inviting an open exchange on opportunities for the Australian arts and cultural sector to lead in social innovation.

This lecture is co-sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Studies at UWA, the Western Australian Museum and Museums Australia Western Australia.
