25-29 September 2024 in Tbilisi, Georgia
A joint conference from DEMHIST, ICOM MPR, ICOM Georgia and Tbilisi Museums Union
House Museums at the Crossroads: How Do We Empower Social Change?”

Historic House Museums around the globe are guardians of historical and cultural legacies, local stories, and memories. However, we envision such institutions evolving to also play a vital role in catalysing social change in our rapidly changing world. How can house museums respond to the task of engaging with their communities? How do we partner and collaborate to drive transformative progress? What opportunities and threats do we face in forging common bonds and interests to empower social change?

This inclusive conference welcomes your experience, whether you are a house museum professional or work in another related field no matter the size of your museum.

Submit a proposal to share your work through our open call for papers, posters, workshops, and more! You do not need to be a member of ICOM or DEMHIST to submit a proposal, but preference will be given to ICOM members.
