The 13th CoMuseum International Conference entitled Museums and Justice will be held from 6-8 December 2023 in Athens! This year’s Conference is about justice and representation: being fair within and through museums and cultural organizations. Included in the discussion will be the degree to which DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility) principles are being considered or applied internally in cultural organizations in terms of employment, governance,  and programming, and how in turn this process, or lack of, affects cultural action around the world. 

The 13th CoMuseum International Conference will be held on December 6-7, 2023 at the Benaki Museum/Pireos 138 in Athens, and on December 8 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Parts of the conference will also be available in Live-Streaming.

British Council Ireland are delighted to be supporting the mobility of one of the conference speakers this year, Annie Fletcher.
