The International Training Centre for Museum Studies (ITC), one of the committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM), has announced its next museum training programme. Entitled ‘Managing a Museum Today’, it will be held from 9 to 17 April 2018 in Beijing, China.

Outstanding international and Chinese experts will give lectures and conduct discussions and group work on museum topics such as museums and community engagement, the social role of museums, developing partnerships and museum ethics. The programme will include visits to local museums as well as a full-day excursion to cultural heritage sites in and around Beijing.
