"The International Committee for University Museums and Collections (UMAC) of the International Council of Museums (ICOM) invites proposals for its 19th Annual Conference, which will be held on 1-7 September 2019 in Kyoto, Japan. The theme of the conference is ‘University Museums and Collections as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition’.
University museums and collections are culture hubs. They preserve the cultural heritage of universities and make it accessible to researchers, students, and broader audiences. University museums and collections in the arts, sciences and humanities connect objects, people and stories, in the past and the present. They also provide inspiring encounters between diverse cultures across the university community and in the global context".
