ICOM’s training workshops and activities promote and encourage capacity building for museum professionals
In order to shape the museum of tomorrow, ICOM delivers high standard capacity building programmes with the support of its network. The objective of these programmes is to improve museum practices in specific regions and to promote professional regional cooperation between institutions that are facing similar challenges. ICOM’s specificity is to offer capacity-building activities adapted to each field. These trainings are designed to fit the participants’ needs and profiles. ICOM’s trainings activities are flexible: their duration, location, and themes are tailored for a given situation. Furthermore, the programmes give a large priority to practical workshops, courses and exchange programmes instead of theoretical seminars, with hands-on exercises organised within the concerned institutions.
