These will be the topics of the next workshop of the ICOM International Training Centre for Museum Studies (ICOM-ITC), which will be held in Beijing, China, from 10 to 18 April 2019. In this 12th edition of the training programme, Chinese and international participants and lecturers will discuss and exchange knowledge about collection documentation, long-term care of collections and the importance of management policies for collections.
The programme will follow the ICOM-ITC training method, which combines practice and theory with lectures, group work, discussions, visits to local museums, and a full-day excursion to cultural heritage sites around the capital.
