Museum is hosting a three day conference which will discuss how the
history and material culture of information can be made relevant for
today's audiences, and celebrate the participation projects which have
supported the gallery's development.

We would welcome contributions from peers across the sector and beyond,
to support this exciting conference. The call for contributions can be
viewed at
