ICOM-ITC Workshop on Current Practices in Museum Management

ICOM-ITC Current Practices in Museum Management The International Training Centre for Museum Studies of the International Council of Museums (ICOM-ITC), housed at the Palace Museum in Beijing, China, has announced its next training programme, entitled 'Current Practices in Museum Management', that will be held in Beijing between 11 and 19 April 2016. In this context, a number of outstanding international experts will give lectures and conduct discussions and group work on museum topics such as the role of museum today, collection management and exhibition process. The programme will also include lectures by Chinese experts, and a full-day excursion will show participants around the best-known cultural heritage sites in and around Beijing. This ICOM-ITC training workshop is targeted at ICOM members from emerging countries and from the Asian Pacific region. Some full and partial grants are available. ICOM-ITC results from a collaboration between ICOM, ICOM-China and the Palace Museum, Beijing. By providing inclusive and participatory training programmes for museum professionals, the centre intends to “promote research and exchange among museums at an international level and develop the museum expertise of professionals from developing countries, especially those from the Asia-Pacific region,” where the museum sector is growing rapidly and there is a high demand for museum professionals. ICOM-ITC was officially inaugurated in July 2013. For additional information about ICOM-ITC and the forthcoming workshop on 'Current Practices in Museum Management', please visit
