THE CoMUSEUM
MORE THAN A CONFERENCE

DECEMBER 1 – 3, 2021

The 2020 International Conference took place digitally during December 2-4 last year, featuring 29 speakers, who, through keynotes, panel discussions, fire-chat talks and workshops, addressed four key topics of concern to museums and cultural organizations: leadership in the 21st century; the social role of museum; digital transformation; and green conscience and wellbeing.​ We hereby wish to thank all contributors, supporters and our audience for participating in the 10th CoMuseum! Now it’s time to move forward.

This year, the CoMuseum wishes to explore what the future holds for museums at a strategic and practical level, feeling optimistic about the Recovery of Museums​. ​The CoMuseum Organizing Committee is already planning the next instalment and parallel events leading to the main conference, scheduled for December 1-3, 2021, which will take place either in digital or physical environment, or, even, in hybrid form.​ ​

Based on your comments and suggestions we received through our survey and the findings of the Museums Revisited survey that the British Council is currently conducting on the priorities and needs in the museum sector, the CoMuseum team plans to include more sessions, new subjects and new forms of interaction and areas of work as well as additional collaborators, in order to continue enriching the CoMuseum with content that responds to the needs of our community – all of you.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to interact with the CoMuseum community in the next months, by following our digital channels.

THE CONFERENCE: MEET CULTURAL PROFESSIONALS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE

Invited speakers are innovators, daring changemakers and strong advocates of the power that culture has on people’s lives. They are determined to multiply this power by sharing their most valuable expertise and experience.

THE WORKSHOPS: THINK AND DO; TOGETHER

Participants work together to find solutions on common challenges in the field of cultural production. As a core part of the conference, the workshops use new models of learning together at the intersection of culture, activism, education, creativity, entrepreneurship, solidarity, urbanism and social innovation.
