ICOM Austria, ICOM Czech Republic, ICOM Slovakia, ICOM Poland and Museum of King Jan III's Palace at Wilanów invite to attend the 2nd Seminar in a cycle “Planning an extended museum”: Museums and Identities.
The seminar will be held on 21st – 23rd November in Museum of King Jan III's Palace at Wilanów, Warsaw.

„Museums and landscapes are an essential element of humanity’s physical, natural, social and symbolic environment.” Based on this first sentence from the ICOM Resolution of the
24th ICOM General Conference in Milano 2016 “The Responsibility of Museums Towards Landscape” we want to continue the discussion initiated during the first Seminar in 2017, about the impact museums have and how they react to the landscape that surrounds them, urban or rural. What particular responsibility for protecting this natural heritage
and to promote sustainable development do museums have?

As we are celebrating the European Year of Cultural Heritage this year, we celebrate the diverse cultural heritage across Europe. We want to raise the question if museums not
only preserve Europe's cultural heritage at national, regional and local level, but if they also are in the position to be an important factor to contribute to build an European
identity that is felt to be still missing.

Topics of interest for submission include:
1. Perspectives: Different Identities and Missions of Museums
2. Neighbours: Impact of Museums on Cultural Landscapes and Social Networks
3. Politics: Museums in Historical and Contemporary Context
4. Nature: Environmental Impact of Museums
5. Economy: Impact of Museums on Local Development & Financial Sustainability
6. European Union: Impact of Museums on European Identity

We invite to send an original research abstracts, case studies before the Abstract submission deadline. All research papers will be evaluated by international
Committee. All the accepted abstracts will be eligible to be presented at the seminar after the confirmation of participation.
