THE CoMUSEUM
MORE THAN A CONFERENCE

DECEMBER 1 – 3, 2021

The CoMuseum is coming to a screen near you, on December 1-3, 2021! 
This year’s Conference and workshops take place online.
 

The Benaki Museum, the U.S. Embassy in Greece and the British Council are excited to announce the 2021 CoMuseum: (Re)Positioning the museum of tomorrow.

As the global community attempts to tackle the challenges of social inequality, the climate emergency, and health and safety, museums and cultural organizations are thinking about their new position in the world. The CoMuseum 2021 will explore the repositioning of museums and cultural institutions through a human-centered approach, and with new tools, skills and leadership models. Some of the topics that the CoMuseum 2021 will address include sustainability and digital strategies; the future of content regarding collections, curating and storytelling; the social impact of cultural organizations; and the museum’s role in the climate crisis.

The full conference program and list of workshops is now public!
