The main focus of the trip will be a visit to the Royal Museum for Central Africa on Friday 7th February. The day’s programme will include a guided tour of the new galleries, speaking to staff about current curatorial decision making, the museum’s work with source and local BME communities, and a Q&A session. The day will finish with a teatime group discussion and reflection on the visit.

Saturday plans are TBC depending on numbers and members preferences, options are self-guided museum visits to Brussels and Antwerp museums or a guided tour of a preferred museum.

Members will be responsible for booking their own transport and accommodation, but suggested transport arrival and accommodation will be provided including airBnB sharing options to help keep the cost down. There will also be networking opportunities on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at selected pubs and restaurants. We hope this trip will provide members with a bit of time out from busy schedules, to get together with peers to share and reflect on current practices and future aspirations.

Proposed itinerary:

Travel to Brussels Thursday 6th

Visit Africa Museum Friday 7th

Explore Brussells and/or Antwerp Museums Saturday 8th

Travel home Sunday 9th
