Rapid Response Webinars

The CIMAM board has designed a program of Rapid Response Webinars that allow CIMAM members to continue discussing the most urgent concerns and questions affecting the modern and contemporary art museum community at this time.

This initiative responds to CIMAM’s spirit and commitment to be a platform for global discussion, a space for sharing and connecting, for learning and encouraging cooperation.

Rapid Response Webinars will be held every last Thursday of the month moderated by board members at different time zones and guests. Sessions are accessible to CIMAM Members and recorded for those who missed the time.
