ICOM Europe Board’s Kick-Off for the International Conference in Lisbon, Portugal

ICOM Europe’s board members gatehered today for a kick-off meeting ahead of the ICOM Europe International Conference. This upcoming conference, themed “Bridging the Gap between Museums and Communities: The Role of Communication and Education,” is set to begin tomorrow and run for the following day at the Lisbon National Coach museum, Portugal.

During this pre-conference meeting, our board members diligently reviewed the final content details and addressed technical aspects to ensure a seamless launch of the event. They also made a site visit to the conference room to confirm all arrangements.

We are excited to announce that the conference has attracted over 200 participants from more than 15 countries, making it a truly international gathering of museum professionals and students.

In a significant development, we are pleased to announce that we will be livestreaming the entire conference. This initiative ensures that everyone, regardless of their location, can actively engage with the event. You can access the live stream through this link Day 1 and Day 2.

The ICOM Europe International conference will explore the empowering role of communities as co-creators of knowledge. It promises to deliver engaging discussions on various themes.
