International Museum Day Theme
ICOM has announced the theme for 2017's International Museum Day, celebrated on and around May 18th annually. The theme this year will be "Museums and Contested Histories: Saying the Unspeakable in Museums". As every year, ICOM hopes that museums and organizations around the world will collaborate and organize exhibitions, activies and events around the theme. The dedicated website contains downloadable posters in several languages and indicates some helpful steps to follow for those wishing to participate. As the day gets closer, additional materials such as flyers, postcards and activity packages will also be available.
The website provides more resources.
