26th ICOM General Conference – The Power of Museums
Prague, capital of the Czech Republic and a magnificent open-air museum, will welcome the 26th ICOM General Conference in the week of 20–28 August 2022.
Museum professionals from around the world will put forward the topics and set the direction of the museum sector for the next three years at least.
ICOM will be interested in the strength, position and capacity of museums in building a free, democratic and educated society, reactions of museums to the challenges and needs of the 21st century; and the ability to cope with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, both societal and economic.
The results of the search for a new definition of “museum” will be presented at ICOM Prague 2022.
