MORE THAN A CONFERENCE
DECEMBER 2–4, 2020
Restarting in 2020, the CoMuseum International Conference launches as a physical and digital platform for museums and cultural professionals. Its goal is to share best ideas and practices from around the world, highlight contemporary challenges and create a global network of professionals that will co-design a culture-edge future of our societies.
After a decade of annual events offering capacity building for the museums and cultural community in Greece, the Museum Conference will soon launch its new identity. The CoMuseum International Conference, taking place in Athens and Thessaloniki, will feature top international experts from museums and cultural institutions that will share insights and ideas on the present and future of museums and other CoMuseum activities will be organised throughout the year. The next conference is scheduled for December 2 – 4, 2020. Our priority, of course, is the health and safety of our community, therefore, we will take all necessary measures to create a safe event, and may adjust the dates and set up of our main conference to ensure the wellbeing of our participants and stakeholders.
Stay tuned for more announcements about the CoMuseum, as well as of virtual engagements (talks, discussions, meet-ups and webinars) leading up to our conference. During these challenging times, as we all contemplate how to be sustainable and even thrive in a COVID-19 world, we would like to invite you to stay connected with the CoMuseum through our new social media platforms.
You may draw inspiration from the experts of past events, through the Museum Conference videos on the Blod platform.
And you may stay informed of all our news by signing up to receive the CoMuseum newsletter.
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.
