Young members network and grants


Dear Young CECA Member,

We as ICOM-CECA Board feel it is important to give everyone a voice within the committee. That is why we started the Special Interest Groups in 2020. These online communities are formed around a substantive theme. The Young Members Network is formed around an age group because sometimes it is also nice to share experiences with peers.

Are you between the ages of 18 and 35?
Come and join students and young professionals in museum education from all over the world: for meetings, conversations, networking, workshops, competitions… These meetings take place on online.

Are you interested and want to participate in these online meetings? Please send an email to ceca[at] or register here ( to receive the zoom link.
If you have already done so, you will be in a mailing list and will receive your zoom link in the week before the meeting.

Hope to see you soon.
