International Museum Day (IMD) Singapore Symposium 2022 - The Power of Museums
The theme for ICOM’s 2022 International Museum Day, The Power of Museums, recognises museums as places of discovery that teach us about our past and compels us to open our minds to new ideas. As spaces for education, intellectual discourse, and research, museums have immense power to shape the thoughts, behaviours, and the actions of people. Museum professionals are thus uniquely placed to catalyse social awareness and action on contemporary issues facing our world today, in the hopes of building a better future for our respective communities.

The COVID-19 pandemic and Climate Change are two such issues challenging the world today, and museums have the power to lead the way in presenting and facilitating conversations on innovative and sustainable solutions to these vexing issues. Museums especially have a role to play in engaging and educating our youth who could chart fresh perspectives and new directions for the museum sector.

Organised by the ICOM Singapore, the National Heritage Board (NHB) and the Singapore Museum Roundtable, this conference will introduce three panels with the aim of exploring the power of museums to innovate, to call for awareness and action on climate change, and to be platforms for the voices of our youth.

We invite you to be part of this important conversation on the power of museums to play these important roles.
