Our Annual Seminar is back in-person this year, and we look forward to welcoming you to M Shed in Bristol. The Annual Seminar is our open platform for UBP members and the wider museum/heritage/arts/academic sectors to share papers on a range of new work: portrait-focused research, conservation, audience engagement, co-production and interpretation. We seek to showcase new findings, best practice case studies, and innovative working models. Programmes from past Annual Seminars can be found on our Events page.
