Peter Greenaway's Museum Studies talk rescheduled for 1 April at the V&A

Last April, our School of Museum Studies hosted a conference where the keynote speaker was supposed to be film director Peter Greenaway but that pesky old cloud of volcanic ash put paid to his flight.

Last year's Narrative Space conference was a collaboration between Museum Studies at Leicester and the University of Nottingham's School of the Built Environment. It all went very well, except that Iceland exploded just before the conference, sending up a cloud of ash which grounded flights across Europe and kept away people who should have been there including the keynote speaker, internationally renowned film director, artist and curator Peter Greenaway.

Greenaway has now found a window in his schedule and very kindly agreed to fly over to the UK from Amsterdam to talk about his curatorial works which include the inspiring Wedding at Cana, presented as part of the Venice Biennale in 2009.

The one-year-on keynote speech will be delivered at the V&A in London on 1 April 2011. If you were a delegate at Narrative Space the organisers will be in touch to arrange complementary tickets.

If you didn't sign up for the conference, you can go along anyway. Tickets are £8/£6 from the V&A Box Office on 0207 942 2211.
