Conference should again highlight topics such as: whether and how we have moved over the past period, where the field of museums and galleries is heading, how we are responding to global developments, how the coming changes affect us, what are the conditions for everyday museum practice, how our approach to visitors is changing, how the role of museums in society is evolving, etc. The aim is to share experiences, to inspire each other, to present new strategies, trends, perspectives and visions, to enable the comparison of different views on the functioning of the museum community and to provide a space for much needed discussion.

Conference will be divided into five thematic blocks followed by panel discussion. The languages of the meeting are Czech (Slovak) and English and simultaneous interpreting will be provided.
