Sea Change; challenges and opportunities for UK Maritime Heritage

Event date(s)

UK Maritime Heritage Forum, 2022

This October the Maritime Heritage Network will convene the United Kingdom Maritime Heritage Forum (UKMHF) for the first time since 2019. As organisations and individuals - throughout museums, archives, historic or working ships - we are all preserving, sharing and seeking relevance for our heritage within a changing world. The contemporary significance of the maritime sector has become more visible in recent times, and together, working across maritime heritage, we can embrace new challenges and create opportunities. 

This year’s UKMHF aims to embrace change head-on, to apply lessons from recent experience and to look forward. Whether you are a senior leader or consultant, a conservator, curator or archivist, a historian or researcher, a specialist in engagement or interpretation, a volunteer or operator of working craft – or a mixture of all - we want to hear your experiences and ideas on adapting to change. The conference theme is ‘Sea Change’, with sessions structured to look at best practice and creative responses in different areas. 

We are delighted to announce the initial programme of events, conference sessions and study visits and invite bookings. Conference options are:

-    Full Conference, Wednesday-Friday 19th-21st October: £145

-    Single Day, Thursday 20th October: £95 

-    Single Day, Friday 21st October: £60 

Purchase your ticket now to avoid disappointment.

All conference options include full catering. The deadline for all final bookings is Friday 7th October. This UKMHF is being jointly supported and hosted in the museums, ships and historic buildings of the Mary Rose Museum, National Museum of the Royal Navy, and Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust.
