Margherita Sani presents the methodology and general tips of international cooperation for museums – From a Project Idea to a Successful Proposal. The methodology is based on the NEMO research toolkit – on Cross-border cooperation for Museums. The toolkit helps museums, museum associations and other cultural organisations across Europe to better access EU funding and increase their international activities. It gives an overview of the benefits of international cooperation and the existing funding opportunities. Following the first training opportunity, which was exclusive to museum workers in the South Caucasus region, a free webinar on the same topic and led by the same facilitator was organised.
What is your museum for? Are you able to answer this question? Do you know the mission, the vision and the values of your museum? In a changing world, museums should regularly think about what they actually are doing, what they want to achieve and how they are working.
In this webinar, David Vuillaume gives you some keys to develop, confirm or rethink your museum identity statement.
One of the biggest challenges museums face nowadays has to do with the increased number and variety of activities addressed to the public, or, better, to the publics. The concept of audience development translates into the numerous practices museums put into place in order to satisfy the needs both of the audience and of the funders. The term public engagement – as opposed to education – therefore better reflects what museum educators currently do.
The webinar looks at this shift, using examples and case studies from different institutions in Europe.
