MINOM 2024 - Catania, Sicilia, IT - 22-23/02/2024

MINOM invites a new broad reflection on the social function of museums, and all transforming practices rooted in a debate about the past, for the present.


The objective of this MINOM 2024 Conference is to explore the possibilities of existence and the margins of action for such practices, engaged with collective memory and territorial heritage, in response to different critical conditions, according to different contexts.

Therefore, MINOM calls for discussion on how to react to ongoing social and ecological challenges through practices that aim to feed emancipatory, transformative, decolonizing processes, building alliances, interrelationships and networks between disciplines and practices, as well as between territories.

It is important to emphasize that the meeting is promoted aiming at the plurality of people and ideas, and, therefore, all information is always available in English, Italian, Portuguese, French and Spanish.

There are several ways to participate:

  • Call for abstracts for oral or poster presentations - until 10/15/2023 using the form for presentations.
  • Participation in the conference without presenting a scientific contribution - until 11/30/2023 using the form for participation.
  • Social museology workshops with groups and movements - to be held in the days prior to the conference, February 20th and 21st, with availability of the Italian ecomuseums to receive participants, registration until 10/15/2023 using the form for workshops.

To enable your participation, you can also apply for Solidarity Scholarships. 10 young researchers and activists will be awarded a contribution from ICOM International to participate in the conference, up to a maximum limit of 1,500 euros, with a main focus on Latin America, African countries and other southern contexts, not excluding other possibilities.
