Each year since 1977, ICOM has organised International Museum Day, which represents a unique moment for the international museum community.International Museum Day 2019 will focus on the new roles of museums as active actors in their communities.
The role of museums in society is changing. Museums keep reinventing themselves in their quest for becoming more interactive, audience focused, community oriented, flexible, adaptable and mobile. They have become cultural hubs functioning as platforms where creativity combines with knowledge and where visitors can also co-create, share and interact.
While preserving their primary missions – collecting, conservation, communication, research, exhibition – museums have transformed their practices to remain closer to the communities they serve. Today they look for innovative ways to tackle contemporary social issues and conflict. By acting locally, museums can also advocate and mitigate global problems, striving to meet the challenges of today’s society proactively. As institutions at the heart of society, museums have the power to establish dialogue between cultures, to build bridges for a peaceful world and to define a sustainable future.
The main conference center of International Museum Day in China is located at Hunan Provincial Museum and all the museum display cases for the important activity and exhibition are supplied by WANGDA SHOWCASES
