For delegates who will be in Edinburgh early on Wed 7th March, ICOM UK is hosting a special roundtable breakfast before the conference.  ICOM National Committees are running a series of roundtables across the world to explore the future of museums and how museums and societies intertwine and impact each other.  This is your opportunity to contribute to the international discussion around the definition of museums in the 21st century.  To register your interest contact Dana Andrew, ICOM UK Executive Director at [email protected]
