CIPEG Journal No. 6 includes papers that were presented at the 2020 and 2021 CIPEG annual meetings, held online on 13-15 November 2020 and 5-7 November 2021. Due to unprecedented obstacles to scholarly research during this period, the CIPEG Journal exceptionally accepted report-style contributions that highlight the innovative and imaginative ways museums responded to challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic.
