Exploring Intangible Cultural Heritage in Museum Contexts: A Pilot Project

The Report demonstrates the benefits of involving ICH practicing communities and artists as intermediaries between the diverse groups of bearers and cultural organisations, in order  to forge an equitable tripartite curation that might make collections and museum spaces alive and relevant to contemporary society. It also shows why, as a consequence, museums could benefit from  reviewing and recasting their physical and practical boundaries. Bearer communities are guardians of our rich and diverse cultural traditions, collective memories, history, stories and rites and ritual practices.

Call for Papers – ICOM Kyoto 2019

On 1-7 September 2019, Kyoto will be the city to receive some 3,000 participants to the ICOM General Conference. A flood of discussions and exchange of ideas on museum-related issues will sweep the city during the week. 

ICOM Kyoto 2019 General Conference aims to provide a forum for considering how museums look towards the future whilst respecting the traditions of the past. By creating new functions as cultural hubs, it must be possible to create a richer future – as museums make use of traditional culture, with the theme- “Museums as Cultural Hubs: the Future of Tradition”.

We hope that Kyoto 2019 will be an opportunity to bring participants together from any discipline across the museum and culture sector from all over the world, whether they be academic or professional to come together to discuss topics and case studies relating to the themes.
