Sharon Ament, Director, Museum of London

Thursday 15th March, 17:30-18:45

Opened in 1976, the Museum of London decided in 2015 to relocate from the Barbican to Smithfield. The opportunities provided for the Museum in its new site demand a strong vision, tenacity, courage and above all a deep attention to what it means to be a museum of a global city at a time of societal discombobulation. It’s not a time to ‘approach with caution’: it is a project that simply has to be profound.

Free admission, all seats are allocated on a first-come first-served basis.

Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. The aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate.

Many speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. The lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.

Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.

All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis. For more popular talks an overspill room will be in operation.

Recordings of some past lectures can be found here.
