Los Angeles has just welcomed an international delegation of 320 museums. With the contribution of 10 prestigious cultural venues, we organised 15 exclusive events and invited 70 speakers to debate the role of ‘Museums Beyond Walls’. From activism to entertainment, all talks demonstrated how deeply concerned museums are about inclusion and how highly involved they are with their local communities.
This Californian edition was the biggest conference ever organised by Agenda. We felt a powerful sense of collaboration amongst the Californian institutions and it was a pleasure to work with them. Our dear friends John Giurini from the J. Paul Getty Museum and Miranda Carroll from LACMA were essential in bringing the CTM conference to Los Angeles.
We feel very privileged to have received such a warm welcome by the city’s most iconic landmarks such as the J. Paul Getty Museum, LACMA, Hammer Museum, Natural History Museum and MOCA. The opening reception at The Getty Center and the fabulous farewell dinner at LACMA have become our most cherished memories of the conference.
Thank you Los Angeles for this special gift.
