Kyoto | 2019 ICOM conference - Museums as Cultural Hubs: the Future of Tradition
On 1-7 September 2019, Kyoto will receive some 3,000 participants to the ICOM General Conference on the theme: Museums as Cultural Hubs - the Future of Tradition.
The theme, “Hubs” aims to highlight 2 key concepts:
- Museums as “Networks” –supporting collaborative partnerships with one another,
- Museums as “Cores” –invigorating communities at the local level.
The sub-theme “The Future of Tradition” aims to link museums to the future whilst respecting traditions. We look forward to discussing these timely topics with participants from all over the world.
A flood of discussions and exchange of ideas on museum-related issues will sweep the city during the week. From excursions to workshops give you opportunities to engage with other museum professionals and enthusiasts and to broaden your experience and understanding of the museum world.

Keynote speeches include Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and the Chinese artist Cai Guo-Qiang.
