One of the key concepts behind the ICOM 2019 theme of "Museums as Cultural Hubs" is supporting museum collaborations and partnerships. In the spirit of this theme, the Commonwealth Association of Museums (CAM), the International Council of African Museums (AFRICOM), the Museums Association of the Caribbean (MAC), and the Pacific Islands Museums Association (PIMA) are collaborating to  organise a half day event to explore international partnerships and collaborations and the potential for these four ICOM Affiliated Organisations to work together more effectively. 

In the second part of the meeting we will discuss how CAM, AFRICOM, MAC, and PIMA can collaborate more effectively in the future, whether on specific programmes such as internships, exchanges, distance learning, workshops, conferences, and special projects, or by developing more formal relationships such as reciprocal memberships.

To submit a proposal for a 15-minute presentation or to exhibit a poster, contact Catherine C. Cole, CAM Secretary-General catherinec.cole [at] telus.net; abstracts should be 350 words and biographies 75 words; deadline: 15 December 2018; approval: 31 March 2019.
