We are excited to connect and learn together with colleagues from across the UK and beyond at this iconic venue in Derby from 7 – 9 September 2022.

The Museum of Making was developed with support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England, D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership and other charitable grants, and opened to the public in Spring 2021. The site celebrates Derby’s 300-year history of making to inspire new creativity, in what is regarded as the world’s first modern factory, Derby Silk Mill.

This year GEM will be offering a hybrid conference model, with all keynotes, panel discussions and presentations on the main stage being available to join live online for those who are unable to travel to Derby. There are a variety of ticket options available, including online, in-person, one day and ‘all staff’ institutional tickets. Please visit our booking page to learn more, and reserve your space.
