Towards a National Collection Two-Day Conference 2024

Hold the Date!

The TaNC directorate is pleased to announce that the programme’s final conference will take place on 20 and 21 November 2024 at the Contact Theatre, Oxford Rd, Manchester, M15 6JA. The TaNC Conference 2024 will be an in person conference with hybrid access. Registration for in-person and online attendance will open in summer 2024. 

The TaNC Conference 2024 will be a celebration of the research and development embraced and supported by TaNC. In 2021, TaNC initiated five major Discovery Projects aiming to investigate and harness digital technologies in order to break down the barriers between different cultural heritage collections, opening them up to new research, and enhancing opportunities for public engagement. At the conference, the TaNC Discovery Projects will present their achievements through a variety of presentations as well as dynamic and performative media. To learn more about our five Discovery Projects, see the film below or click here

At the programme’s final conference, TaNC will also launch its policy recommendations, aiming to help and inspire the UK cultural heritage sector and its funders to transition to a common set of standards which make collections more visible, discoverable, inter-operable and secure.
