About CECA

What is CECA?

The Committee for Education and Cultural Action (CECA) is one of the oldest International Committees of the International Council of Museums (ICOM). With over 1,000 members coming from about 85 countries, CECA is also one of its largest Committees. Members are professionals working in different sectors of the museum field or in institutions related to this field, as educators, curators, professors, communication agents or interpreters interested in education and cultural action applied to a particular sort of heritage.
