I am pleased to announce that the website for the Collections Trust's OpenCulture conference is now live, featuring a programme of nearly 40 UK and international speakers addressing the theme of 'How can collections power tomorrow's Participatory Museum?'.

Our keynote speakers this year include Deron Burba, Chief Information Officer at the Smithsonian Institution, who will speak about the challenge of managing information in a large cultural organisation and the current status of the Smithsonian Commons.

We will also hear from Diane Lees, Director General of the Imperial War Museum about her new 'Digital by Default' strategy, as well as Dr Beth Harris and Dr Steven Zucker about the astonishing success of the Smarthistory project at the Khan Academy. 

The event features workshops, presentations and an evening reception at which we will be announcing the winners of the annual Collections Management Awards, plus some surprises along the way!

I really hope colleagues from the OpenGLAM community will be able to join us and I look forward to welcoming you there!
