Hello: An interesting development in the museum field: I just received the following news from Prof. Amareswar Galla, who was an ICOM-CC Keynote Speaker during our Plenary Sessions of the 2005 ICOM-CC 14th Triennial Conference in The Hague, where he spoke on the theme ‘Involving society in the conservation of cultural heritage’ . — Carole
I am in transition with establishing the International Institute for the Inclusive Museum (www.inclusivemuseum.org) which brings together 10 relevant universities and 15 museums across the world. It will have hubs in Chicago, Mumbai, Paris and Sydney. It will bring together several knowledge communities that are currently accessible under different urls or at least provide an easy gateway to access them: Cross Cultural Task Force, International Council of Museums, Paris; Pacific Asia Observatory for Cultural Diversity in Human Development (UNESCO Project): www.ijih.org ; www.onmuseums.com ; www.onsustainability.com; www.on-climate.com & several others.
Thank you for your kind attention.
