Common Project for International Museum Day 2022

On 18 May the International Council of Museums (ICOM) celebrates the International Museum Day 2022 with the theme “The Power of Museums”. The objective is to raise awareness about the fact that, “Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.”

 

In a joint campaign from 4 to 18 May, about 30 Wikimedia Chapters and groups worldwide invite volunteers to create free accessible content about museums and people on Wikipedia and its sister projects.
