- The Social Impact of Museums
1 - 4 May 2014
21st century museum management is confronted with many social challenges. Museums have to be more active in trying to reconsider their social value so that they can fulfill their duty of social responsibility. The International Committee on Management of the International Council of Museums (INTERCOM) together with the Federation of International Human Rights Museums (FIHRM) will discuss The Social Impact of Museums and underlying challenges in contemporary museum management in three key themes:
1. Museum Value and Valuation
2. Social Memories and Equality Empowerment
3. Social enterprise and working with communities
The aim of the conference is to use the museum as the platform for social harmony and develop our international network of museums and related organizations in three days of stimulating debate, networking opportunities and study visits in Taiwan. Full details on the three key themes can be found below.
