From August 20-28, join the international museum community at ICOM Prague 2022 — both on-site and online!

With the theme The power of museums, ICOM Prague 2022 will focus on four main issues: economic and environmental sustainability; digitization and new technologies; civil society and community building; leadership and management. In addition, the General Conference will serve as a backdrop for the debate and vote on a new definition of the museum.

For the first time in ICOM’s history, the General Conference will take place in a new hybrid format.
