From 20 to 23 July 2020 the Museum of English Rural Life will play host to the Congress of the International Association of Agricultural Museums, AIMA.
Please consider submitting a proposal and feel free to share this information far and wide. It would be great to have a good representative body of content from members of the Rural Museums Network at the 2020 Congress.
The Rural Museums Network Committee are also aiming to organise and co-host some elements of the programme, perhaps in the form of a workshop / sharing session intended to cater for museum professionals who aren’t agriculture experts but who might wish to benefit from expertise of the farming museum community. The format of this Rural Museums Network contribution is yet to be finalised but watch this space for more details.
Bookings for the Congress are set to open later this year once a provisional programme is in place. Details will be circulated closer to the time. Suffice to say that we hope as many Rural Museums Network members as possible will be keen to attend and participate in what we hope will be a useful event for all of us.
AIMA is an ICOM-Affiliate and an international network that we believe will grow to serve our agricultural museum sector well in years to come.

Closing date for proposals: 28 June 2019
