This year’s CoMuseum International Conference is about justice and representation: being fair within and through museums and cultural organizations. The degree to which DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility) principles are being considered or applied internally in cultural organizations in terms of employment, governance, and programming, and how in turn this process, or lack of, affects cultural action around the world are among the subjects discussed during the 3-day conference.
The 13th CoMuseum International Conference has started yesterday, December 6 at the Benaki Museum. Today, December 7, the workshops/masterclasses will be held.
On December 8, the CoMuseum Thessaloniki edition will take place at the Thessaloniki Concert Hall (Megaron), at the Emilios Riadis Hall, from 11.30 – 15.00. The Thessaloniki program will feature a Plenary session, as well as masterclasses for museum and cultural professionals and civil society groups from 15.00 – 16.30. Pre-registration is required for both options.
The speakers at the conference are innovators, daring changemakers and strong advocates of the power that culture has on people’s lives. They are determined to multiply this power by sharing their most valuable expertise and experience.
Conference participants work together to find solutions on common challenges in the field of cultural production. As a core part of the conference, the workshops use new models of learning together at the intersection of culture, activism, education, creativity, entrepreneurship, solidarity, urbanism and social innovation.
Part of the Conference will be live-streamed.
The Conference is an admission free event with RSVP. Registration for reservations is required.
