In 2020, CAMOC launched the City Museums Global Mapping Project, a special project focused on understanding the evolution of city museums worldwide. Together with partners ASPAC, COMCOL and NTUE, we are collecting data about where city museums exist, what they are doing, and how they see their role.

We are pleased to announce that CAMOC is holding a workshop in Taipei as part of the project. This workshop with hybrid format entitled City Museums: Perspectives from the Asia Pacific, will explore both the physical and conceptual territory of city museums. Participants will strengthen connections with fellow professionals in the region by contributing to an intellectual map of what city museums do.

The workshop will consist of keynote, presentation of the survey findings, interactive sessions on city museum practices and possibilities, and excursions to explore changing practices of prominent museums.

Schedule subject to change.
