Contribute to the global discussion on the definition of museums in the 21st century

For museum colleagues who will be in Edinburgh on Wed 7 March, ICOM UK is hosting a special round table breakfast (09:30 - 10:30) before the 2018 Working Internationally Conference.

ICOM National Committees are running a series of round tables across the world to explore the future of museums and how museums and societies intertwine and impact each other.  This is your opportunity to contribute to the international discussion around the definition of museums in the 21st century.

Watch this video of Jette Sandahl, Chair of the ICOM Committee for Museum Definition, Prospects and Potential talking about changing the ICOM definition of museums for the 21st century:
