The Museums Association of the Caribbean (MAC) and the Barbados National Museum will host the 21st MAC Annual General Meeting and Conference from November 29 to December 2, 2009, in Bridgetown, Barbados. The conference will be held at the Accra Beach Hotel & Spa. The program includes a walking tour of Bridgetown and an island tour.

Under the theme “Caribbean Curatorship and National Identity,” the conference will examine how history is interpreted and heritage is shaped by communal memory for audiences, old and new, local and foreign. The topic allows for a broad array of issues to be examined in intensive consultation through a regional symposium and master classes to be developed in conjunction with the Museums Association of the Caribbean (MAC), the National Art Gallery Committee (NAGC), the International Curators Forum (ICF) and the International Council of Museums (ICOM).
