The final event in the Museum of the future series of three debates will look at the unique identity of Bloomsbury and in particular the creation of the Knowledge Quarter – the coming together of the many different organisations in the area to produce ideas and knowledge.

Chaired by Lord Nicholas Stern of Brentford, a Trustee of the British Museum and introduced by British Museum Director Neil MacGregor, contributors include Roly Keating, Chief Executive of the British Library, Sir Paul Nurse, British Museum Trustee and Chief Executive and Director of the Francis Crick Institute, Munira Mirza, Deputy Mayor for Education and Culture, GLA, and Councillor Phil Jones, Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Transport and Planning, London Borough of Camden.

The British Museum has made its collection freely available to a global public since 1759, providing a place where people can see the history of what it is to be human. The Museum has constantly evolved since it first opened and attitudes and experiences have continued to change over 255 years. The Museum must also continue to evolve, so what will the Museum of the future look like and how will it feel? Come and be part of the dialogue in a series of three monthly debates. Get involved in person, in the community and online.

This event will be followed by a drinks reception in the Enlightenment Gallery (Room 1).

Come and be part of the dialogue in a series of three monthly debates. Get involved in person, in the community and online.
