About CIMAM’s Rapid Response Webinars
Started in 2020, CIMAM has taken the new virtual scenario as an opportunity to launch a series of online activities exclusively for our community to, now more than ever, reinforce the sense of connectivity through online meetings in a peer to peer environment to share, learn, and be inspired by the experiences of other CIMAM professionals.
For 2021, we have prepared a series of online sessions that will take place, nearly every month of the year, starting in March: 

  • Thursday 25 March: Sustainability and Environmental Change in Museum Practice.

  • Thursday 29 April: Roundtable with András Szántó, author of the book The Future of the Museum: 28 Dialogues.

  • Thursday 13 May: Workshop with National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC).

  • Thursday 27 May: CIMAM Webinar hosted by the Museum Watch Committee about Governance. More webinars to be announced soon.
