Working towards a sustainable past 

The Triennial Conferences of the Committee for Conservation of the International Council of Museums are a major cultural event in the field of cultural heritage at a global level. Around one thousand professionals from all around the world, both ICOM and non-ICOM members, gather together in order to share experiences, ideas and insight, to make valuable contacts with colleagues and representatives from heritage institutions, and to keep up to date with the developments and trends in the field of cultural heritage conservation. After the success of Copenhagen 2017 and Beijing 2020 (in online format), Valencia 2023 has been designed to be an exceptional opportunity for networking, including a number of carefully selected lectures, a trade fair, social events, technical visits. Valencia 2023 even provides the delegates and exhibitors with the unique opportunity to organise ‘impromptu meetings’ for small groups of interest. Konferenssit

The theme is “The Virtual Museum”:  What are the content-related and methodological criteria for a Virtual Museum and what distinguishes it from other online museum databases? In which cases does the installation of a VM make sense? Can and may the VM replace the physical museum? Does the VM pose a threat to the physical museum or can the VM support the physical museum? Are there target groups that can be reached better via the VM than via the physical museum? What opportunities does the VM offer in terms of barrier reduction, inclusion and sustainability?

International Committee for Documentation (CIDOC )
24-28 September 2023 in Mexico 
Museums, documentation and linked data

The CIDOC 2023 Conference will address the importance of building and transforming the frontiers of knowledge in the documentation of museums and the digital integration of their information in order to know what goals we aspire to and where we want to go. We understand these boundaries as limits that obey cultural, institutional and academic positions that we must constantly question and overcome to change our cultural heritage’s future. We invite you to participate in this questioning and to redefine the boundaries to allow for an increasingly inclusive and enriching documentation for all.

The Conference will be held at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México from September 24-28, 2023. Konferenssit

Museums are the link between the past and the future. We invite you to join us in Medellin, Colombia for the International Committee for Exhibition Exchange’s annual conference, Momentum: New Narratives for New Futures, taking place October 22 – 25, 2023 in Medellín Colombia.

Hosted by Parque Explora and co-presented by ICEE and ICOM-Colombia, this conference will provide a space for big conversations, expansive questions, and new ideas. Each day will start with two keynote speakers, one international and one from Colombia, who will engage the delegates in a discourse around one of the following topics: community engagement, power sharing, and co-creation. The goal of these conversations is to generate diverse and thought-provoking reflections. These conversations are the new narratives that our museums and communities will use  to envision their futures. Each afternoon, delegates  will visit local museums where they will have the opportunity to explore, learn and discuss how museums in Medellin are serving their community in new and innovative  ways. The keynotes will be followed by panel sessions focusing on the day’s topics. And because we are in Colombia, each evening will provide the chance to celebrate new friends, build new learning communities, and have fun!

International Committee for Museums and Collections of Science and Technology (CIMUSET)
23.-27. October 2023 in Seoul, Korea
Enhancing the Accessibility to Museums

The 50th CIMUSET annual conference in 2023 will be held at the National Aviation Museum of Korea in Seoul. ICOM newly announced a museum definition at the 26th Prague General Assembly in August 2022. The new definition adds the concept that “Open to the public, accessible and inclusive, museums foster diversity and sustainability.” In this context, we would like to apply it to science and technology museums and conduct various discussions at this year annual conference.

The NAMOK opened on July 5, 2020 as Korea’s first aviation-themed national museum and in particular, it is a representative museum in Korea that promotes various accessibility projects for the disadvantaged.

Contemporary Practices of Care in Collecting

On the occasion of COMCOL’s 13 annual conference we will join forces with the Chinese Association of Museums (CAM) and National Taiwan Museum in Taiwan in 2023. For this conference we will focus on contemporary practices of care in collecting. In the wake of the adoption of the new museum definition at the ICOM General Conference in August 2022, we would like to explore how we can look at the new aspects that were added, emphasizing the social role of the museum, but also its involvement in and with diverse societies. The new definition is both a recognition of existing practices as well as opening new avenues. What does it mean for the act of collecting, but also for the ways collections are dealt with?

Realize Sustainability!

Museums as agents for social and environmental development

Museums are active contributors to the social cohesion of communities, the well-being of individuals, and an informed and active citizenry. Museums are recognized as trusted sources of knowledge and valuable resources for engaging communities to imagine and create sustainable futures for our planet. In the strategic plan of ICOM for 2022 – 2028, Sustainability is a leading idea. 

We believe natural history museums are powerful and can be leaders in achieving that. When we start to discuss sustainability, the role of natural history museums is very obvious. We have been engaged with the ecological and environmental aspects of sustainability for years now, but recently something has changed. Konferenssit
