Call for Articles ICOM Voices / International Museum Day Network

Write for ICOM!

The ICOM website serves as a communication platform for museum- and heritage-related projects, experiences and discussions about the sector. It promotes themes that are at the heart of the museum’s mission today such as sustainability, local development/community, heritage protection, intangible heritage and working conditions for museum professionals. To encourage the exchange of experience and expertise among museum professionals, ICOM has created a new editorial space on its website for this purpose, called ICOM Voices

On the occasion of the International Museum Day 2020 dedicated to the theme ‘Museums and Equality: Diversity and Inclusion’,  we are inviting all ICOM members to submit articles on the following key topics in English, French or Spanish:

  • Gender equality
  • Equality in the workplace
  • Climate justice
  • Accessibility/Disability
  • Discrimination (sexuality, ethnicity, gender)

Articles can be case studies, field reports, book reviews, exhibition or conference reviews; opinion pieces, etc.

Please send your proposal before 16 February 2020.

How to submit an article:

To submit an article for ICOM Voices, please log in to your ICOM member space on the ICOM website and click on ‘Submit an article proposal for ICOM Voices’.

Please type a 100-word summary of your piece in the box provided. Full articles sent as an attachment will also be considered.

Language:

You can send your proposal in one of the three official languages of ICOM: English, French or Spanish.
