Some 3,000 to 4,000 international participants are expected at this crucial event for ICOM, for its members and for the international museum community. It provides a platform for museum professionals from different regions and cultures to share and exchange on their expertise and experience.
In 2009, ICOM members confirmed their confidence in Brazil by selecting Rio de Janeiro as the location of the General Conference in 2013 and look forward to discovering and exploring the cultural delights the city, its surroundings and Brazil as a whole have to offer.
Participants will debate around the theme Museums (memory + creativity) = social change.
