The ARLIS/UK & Ireland* Annual Conference takes place at the University of Leeds. Within walking distance of the vibrant city centre, the campus allows visitors to experience the heritage of the city, including the fine art of Yorkshire and its rich textile design history.
Penelope Curtis from Tate Britain will deliver the keynote address. The programme will look at collaboration and reinvention in the current financial climate, with presentations from a variety of speakers and institutions.
A range of breakout sessions will discuss topics such as marketing, working with volunteers, copyright and exploiting your resources. Organised visits to different institutions around the city will tie in with the launch of a new publication ‘The Art Researchers’ Guide to Leeds’, taking place during the conference.
* ARLIS/UK & Ireland: the Art Libraries Society is the professional organisation for people involved in providing library and information services and documenting resources in the visual arts.
