What participants say about CIMAM 2019?

4-minutes summary video

          “Powerful speeches, good networking, the first encounter with Australian institutions and art scene, political engagement”.

          “Brilliantly conceived and organized. Relevant urgent topics and engaging speakers. I loved the way that indigenous people were at the heart of it without being a topic”.

          “We are sure that CIMAM's contributions will be projected as we manage the exchanges between future collaborations for our cultural context with this important network.”

          “I think it thought forward, and looked honestly at our roles and priorities in the art museum sector, for the public and for artists.”

          “Most of the speakers had real groundbreaking experience in museum development and passed on invaluable information for other delegates to use in their own institutions”.
