A “Reading Artifacts” session, developed by the Canada Science and Technology Museum, will also be part of the programme, with access to objects from the collections of the host institution. In addition, hands-on sessions will be organised in some of the most well-known museums in Beijing; and a full-day excursion will show participants around the best known cultural heritage sites in and around Beijing.
Officially launched on 1 July 2013, ICOM-ITC relies on the ICOM professional network to offer quality training programmes in museum studies to regional and international museum professionals, especially to ICOM members from emerging countries and from the Asian Pacific region.
