The International Committee for the Collections and Activities of Museums of Cities is one of ICOM's youngest International Committees. It is a forum for people who work in or are interested in museums about cities, urban planners, historians, economists, architects or geographers, all of whom can share knowledge and experience, exchange ideas and explore partnerships across national boundaries. In short, CAMOC is about cities and the people who live in them.
One of our members, Rainey Tisdale, a Boston based museum curator specialising in city histories has given an account of how she approached commemoration of the Boston Marathon bombings in April 2013. On http://tedxboston.org/speaker/tisdale
