Earlier this week we attended the 2nd Annual SHARE conference at Christchurch Mansion in Ipswich.

There were two lots of four 20×20 presentations: Collections rationalisation; Working with young people; Collections for family learning; Museums as learning spaces in Hertfordshire; Museums and health – the impact of reminiscence; Community co-production; Going digital; Collections as inspiration.
