A dialogue between professionals from African countries, the Netherlands and Belgium is the result of a collaboration between the Amsterdam Museum, the Reinwardt Academy and the department of European Cultural History of the University of Amsterdam.

City Museums on the move
A dialogue between professionals from African countries, the Netherlands and Belgium
The symposium presented a variety of practical museum experiences, in combination with a more theoretical approach by colleagues from academia. At the symposium there were speakers from African countries (Morocco, Mozambique, South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania), along with speakers from Belgium (Ghent, Brugge and Antwerp) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Zoetermeer, Utrecht, Rotterdam and Sittard).
This richly illustrated publication includes the majority of the lectures, as well as the introductions to the sessions and the plenary discussions. It offers a good impression of some of the trends that are affecting city and community museums in various African countries, Belgium and the Netherlands, and offers an insight into how museums are working for the future, often in cooperation with academics and museologists.
