2022 August: A Sustainable Revolution for Open-Air Museums, ICOM Prague

Co-organised by

EXARC invites you to a session during the ICOM General Conference in Prague. We are in a unique position where our teaching of the past offers our visitors lessons for the future; we are more relevant than ever. How to develop the strength of open-air museums by building partnerships with other organisations? How can open-air museums become leaders in sustainable solutions? How can we change internally, support others and eventually lead the way? How can the virtual world add to the real-life world? All in all, we need to re-imagine our museums and adapt to change.

EXARC joins the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and their triennial meeting in Prague 22-28 August (https://prague2022.icom.museum). This will be a hybrid conference which attracts thousands of international museum professionals. ​There will be a part exclusively for ICOM and its conference participants, while EXARC will broadcast a larger free and open access program around that, as you may remember of our successful EAC World Tour conference last year. By linking our online Conference: "A Sustainable Revolution for Open-Air Museums" with the ICOM General Conference, we will reach a large group of interested museum professionals plus a good number of people who follow EXARC already.

Sponsors – A Sustainable Revolution for Open-Air Museums

The EXARC session during the ICOM General Conference in Prague is a hybrid event. To be able to prepare 3 to 6 hours of online material including Questions and Answers sessions, we need sponsors who support the idea. Each contribution makes it possible to broadcast presentations and therefore also includes those who would otherwise not be able to participate (open access). Read more
