Conference delegate, Vishalakshi Roy, Director at Earthen Lamp, details her highlights of this year’s conference below.

Stay Curious was my fourth AMA conference and like in previous years, the event was a very interesting measure for how the discussions and priorities of the arts and heritage sector are changing. Here are seven thoughts from seven different speakers that have stayed with me, and I hope this gives you something to reminisce and relive your conference experience.
