ROM Contemporary Culture

Following a 20-year history the Institute for Contemporary Culture at the ROM (ICC) is now one of the Museum’s eight Centres of Discovery and has a new name, ROM Contemporary Culture (RCC)

ROM Contemporary Culture is a catalyst that engages today’s leading creators and thinkers who challenge us to look at our world anew, show us historical linkages, and point us to future possibilities. We are excited to share content that will be engaging, surprising and, perhaps, a little unexpected.

Contemporary Culture is a broad area that offers many points of entry.  As an encyclopaedic museum of natural history and world culture, the ROM provides unique opportunities to intersect ideas across disciplines and time.

We look forward to building the RCC community together with ROM curators, colleagues, volunteers, and external partners to connect ideas, objects, and people as we consider our ever changing world and our connections to each other.
