SEAFDEC/AQD’s FishWorld Museum joined the ICOM 2015 Philippine Conference on Museums for a Sustainable Society at the University of St La Salle, Bacolod, 18-21 August. ICOM is the International Council of Museums, a non-government organization of museums and museum professionals. Speakers presented case studies of traditional museums and living museums working with communities for sustainable development. On 3-7 December, the ICOM 2015 Asia-Pacific Conference will be held at the brand new Iloilo City Convention Center.
SEAFDEC/AQD’s FishWorld also joined the Zero In Workshop (#3) on Establishing Community Museums in Bacolod City, 25-29 August, together with about 60 other museum workers from around the country. The resource persons were from Bahay Tsinoy, Museo Pambata, Ayala Museum, Lopez Museum, and Ateneo Art Gallery and were highly knowledgeable and helpful. Wish we had this workshop 15 years ago.
