CAMOC Annual Conference 2019
City Museums as Cultural Hubs – Past, Present and Future

Kyoto, Japan, September 2-5, 2019

Call for Papers

The 2019 CAMOC Annual Conference will take place in Kyoto, on September 2-5,
during the 25th ICOM General Conference. The Kyoto conference will be CAMOC’s
third conference in Asia, following the two general conferences in Seoul (2004) and
Shanghai (2010). It is a pleasure to present the call for papers for our annual
meeting.

The conference will bring together a diverse range of viewpoints on city museums,
by stakeholders which include city museum professionals, curators, researchers,
academics, city governance representatives, students, NGOs. We hope these
stakeholders and others interested in the relationship between a city and its museum
will benefit from this opportunity to connect.

The exciting theme of CAMOC 2019 Annual Conference, City Museums as
Cultural Hubs – Past, Present and Future, is the catalyst for the diversity of
participants we are seeking this year as we look to examine the potential of
connections between past and future. To be able to discuss this, we will go back to
root definitions of a city museum; we will address and revisit tradition(s) in order to
contemplate and envision where we are going in the future. A changing world means
changing cities, and changing issues to be faced. Stepping back to address the
definition of a city museum is therefore imperative.

What are the most relevant issues that challenge city museums? What are the
solutions? These questions will be open to discussion in order to ultimately provide
city museums with strength and potential for the next decade. As this international
conference is taking place in Kyoto, an ancient but vibrant city of culture, this will be
the opportunity to examine the mentioned internationally relevant issues and their
reflections in a particularly inspiring local context.
