ICOM E-NEWSLETTER NOVEMBER 2017

 

18th May 2018
INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY
Hyperconnected Museums: New Approaches, New Publics

 
In an increasingly connected world, it is impossible to understand the role of museums without considering all the connections they make. They are an inherent part of their local communities, cultural landscape and natural environment. Technology allows museums to reach beyond their core audience through something as simple as a hashtag. For some museums, technology is not even required to establish new connections – to approach their collection in a new, innovative way is enough to attract new audience. On International Museum Day 2018, museums all over the world will be encouraged to find new approaches and new audiences by exploring, strengthening and creating connections.

Stay tuned for details in the coming months!

 

 

CAMOC: museum cities and contested urban stories


The International Committee for Museums of Cities (CAMOC) 13th Annual Conference will be held in Mexico City from the 30th to the 31st of October. The main theme of the conference will be Museums of Cities and Contested Urban Histories, continuing with the spirit of ICOM’s International Museum Day theme for 2017, Museums and Contested Histories: Saying the Unspeakable in Museums. The conference will address issues such as controversial histories, post-colonial identities and interpretations of urban history. The participants will also analyse city museums as sites that uphold respect for humain beings, and the inclusion and coexistence of all people - including immigrants who live in every city of the world.

CIMUSET 
Technical Heritage and Cultural Identity


The 45th Annual Meeting of the International Committee for Museums of Science & Technology (CIMUSET) will take place in Rabat, Morocco, from the 5th to the 8th of December. This conference focuses on the theme, ‘Technical Heritage & Cultural Identity’., the meeting, which will take place for the first time in an African country, is an opportunity to reflect on how industrial heritage is perceived as a part of a nation’s cultural heritage, particularly in the light of the paradoxical destruction of historical industrial sites because of industrialisation. Another important theme broached in the conference is how industrial constructions built by colonial powers following military occupation can be included in the cultural identity of the invaded nations.
