Museums after the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly impacted the international museum community. UNESCO and ICCROM jointly organize the webinar “Museums after the Pandemic”.

The COVID-19 pandemic has confronted the international museum community with critical questions and decisions about the future of our museums. In order to successfully overcome ongoing and future challenges of a post-COVID-19 world, it will be crucial for museums to adapt and proactively demonstrate their value to society.

In order to address these critical issues, providing useful insights on ways forward to realize the full potential of museums as agents of transformation, UNESCO and ICCROM have joined forces to organize the webinar “Museums after the Pandemic”.
