O ICOM já anunciou que o tema deste ano para o dia internacional dos museus será:
“Museums as Agents of Social Change and Development”/”Museus como agentes de Mudança Social e Desenvolvimento”.
Alissandra Cummins, Presidente do ICOM afirma: “While traditionally museums are known for their collections, more and more museums are taking an active key role in exploring social issues with communities to contribute to their development. The educational and ethical function of the museum is to engage culturally diverse contemporary communities through exhibitions and workshops and their design. International Museum Day shows that it is possible to gather together in a new way to interpret the past in light of the present to shape a better future.”
Alissandra Cummins acrescenta: “The developing world has been suffering from the digital divide: on International Museum Day, we want to show how museums can help bridge that divide between two worlds through new creative interaction between museum professionals.”
