ICOM Museum Definition: input sought from ICOM UK members and volunteers required for remote working group

A new museum definition was proposed at ICOM Conference in Kyoto this year.  The decision on the proposed new definition was postponed.  Colleagues within ICOM UK are keen to share their views and the ICOM UK Committee are keen to represent and communicate with members on this area of work.  We propose to do this in the following ways.



Monday 13 January, National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, 13:00 – 15:00

Please email Jilly Burns if you would like to attend this session


Tuesday 14 January, London, venue sought

Please contact us at if you could offer a venue in London for this discussion group.



We ask you to complete this questionnaire before Friday 17 January 2020.



Jilly Burns, Head of National & International Partnerships will be leading on this consultation.  She would like to set up a remote working group (4 – 6 people) to review consultation findings and input on a draft report.  This work will require input (by email only) 13 – 31 January 2020.

If you could give your time to support this piece of work please contact Jilly before Thursday 19 December on
