IX Seminar on International Museum Day: Museums as cultural hubs: The future of tradition.

Museums are cultural hubs, meeting places where the heritage tradition is projected into the future for use by future generations. This course aims to be a meeting point for professionals from different disciplines who, from within and outside the academic world and museums, contribute their reflections on the knowledge of Museology and Heritage.
