We hope you are all well and healthy!
As we move into the heart of summer, the CoMuseum team is not slowing down, it is speeding up, preparing for our digital and physical events in the Fall and Winter of 2020.
We are excited to share with you the new identity of the CoMuseum International Conference, highlighting the key themes of our mission – building a strong community that will come together to share knowledge and ideas, in order to co-design a culture-centred future for our societies. You can catch our new logo and visual identity in all our social media.
We would like to thank all of you who joined the recent virtual talk of Dr. Tom Fleming on “The Museum as an Innovator.” For those of you that missed it, you can find the link below. The questions and comments received during and after the discussion will help us shape and narrow the focus of our upcoming conference, planned for December 2-4, 2020. In the lead-up to the conference, we are planning a series of talks on Leadership in the cultural field. Stay tuned for more details at the end of August, and feel free to send us any questions you would like to see addressed on this topic: firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, we are happy to propose a new way to stay connected and continue our collaboration with all of you, our CoMuseum community. The vision of the CoMuseum International Conference is to serve as a physical and virtual interaction platform for museum and cultural professionals. Towards that goal, we would like to invite you to make a friendly take-over of our CoMuseum Instagram account, and use it as a platform to share the work that your museum or cultural institution does. For the next few weeks and until the end of August, we are excited to offer our Instagram account for a 3-day period to some of your organizations, in order to feature your current activities, future programs, the history of your institution, profiles of your team and communities, or any other ideas you may have. If you are interested, please see details below.
We would like to wish all of you a Happy Summer!
