In line with its ‘Our Year of Archaeology’ cultural programming, the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities supports and hosts the third iteration of the Museums in Arabia series. It is organised by Dr Sarina Wakefield, Adjunct Faculty, College of Arts and Creative Enterprises, Zayed University, UAE, and Professor Dr Laila Prager, University of Hamburg, Germany, who is currently Senior Research Fellow at New York University Abu Dhabi, UAE.
A host of museum professionals will convene in Manama to discuss emerging key issues in museum practice and to engage more specifically with how artistic and aesthetic practices and productions (in the broadest sense) are employed within museums, galleries, heritage events and urban planning in the Arabian Peninsula.
