Resilient musical collection documentation and social responsibilities
CIMCIM and CIDOC continue collaboration to further discuss documenting musical collections, particularly from an Inclusive Documentation perspective. The session focuses on the role of social context in defining documentation frameworks. How can documentation practices be inclusive of the rich cultural diversity represented in musical collections? In part, this joint session includes presentation of an online portal of musical instruments, and cases of Latin American music collections.

Breaking down, building up: rethinking collecting practices
In the joint session of CIDOC and COMCOL we will proceed with conversations started in 2021 around rethinking museum practices: decolonizing collections. How to look at power structures that surround collections and collecting. How to dismantle or shift these structures in an aim for a more just approach to heritage? Together with our members we would like to exchange experiences, best and worst cases and build on our capacity to change for a better future.

Digital transformation needs strategy
Museums need sound information management in order to best communicate their collections and themes and develop digital applications to reach their audiences. CIDOC looks for best practice examples where standards are used in order to develop digital documentation and digital applications ideally based on an integrated system.
