International Museum Day 2019 will focus on the new roles of museums as active actors in their communities. The role of museums in society is changing. Museums keep reinventing themselves in their quest for becoming more interactive, audience-focused, community-oriented, flexible, adaptable and mobile agencies. They have become cultural hubs functioning as platforms where creativity combines with knowledge and where visitors can also co-create, share and interact.
The theme of International Museum Day 2019 is "Museums as Cultural Hubs: The Future of Tradition". As a result, we are going to organize the "Art and Science - AR Creation Contest" in which participants will make use of the AR technology to connect traditions and the future. Winning works will be displayed in exhibitions and uploaded to online platforms for sharing with the public.
18:00-19:00 on 15/02/2019, at Macao Science Center, Convention Center, Meeting Rooms 3 and 4. Please complete and submit the online reservation at: https://goo.gl/forms/W8JPEAOUKkWq7rF13

The International Council of Museums (ICOM) established International Museum Day in 1977 to encourage public awareness of the role of museums in the development of society.
From America to Oceania, through Europe, Asia and Africa, International Museum Day (IMD) is a special moment for the global museum community.
