Get together to discuss articles (and sometimes videos and podcasts) relevant to the GLAM sector – just like a book club but with less reading!

This month our discussion will focus on Vincent Noce’s article in The Art Newspaper, What exactly is a museum? ICOM comes to blows over new definition (19 August 2019).

Recently the International Council of Museums (ICOM) suggested a new museum definition. The proposal of a new definition has sparked debate among museum professionals. This month, we’ll be joining that debate! What is a museum?

To read the definition proposals submitted by ICOM members see ‘Creating the new museum definition: over 250 proposals to check out!

Bar snacks included, but you buy your own drinks.
