DEMHIST holds conferences at least once a year, in various places. These conferences offer a platform to raise and discuss professional issues. DEMHIST has developed guidelines for hosts and an evaluation form for participants of its meetings.
DEMHIST also keeps its members informed about relevant conferences by other organizations.
ICOM offers grants to young members who want to participate in an international committee meeting such as DEMHIST. (For more information please go to GRANTS)


Upcoming Conferences

[EDIT June 2024] Due to unforeseen circumstances, the planned DEMHIST conference in Tbilisi in September 2024 will not be taking place. We are regretful for the complications this may cause, and sincerely hope that since the conference registration did not open – you did not make travel plans for Tbilisi.

There will soon be information on an alternate conference plan, and will update you all as soon as possible.


Tbilisi, Georgia

25-29 September 2024

House Museums at the Crossroads : How Do We Empower Social Change?
