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
