Thematic Session 1 - Museum in Transition
Expansion of museum allows more proactive and innovate programming, creating better connections with visitors and engaging them in diverse ways -- to pause, to participate, to reflect and to contribute.
Thematic Session 2 - Museum in Context
Expansion of museum is not only about physical growth, rather, it furnishes the museum with possibilities to revitalise its collections for a wider audience and to inspire social interaction as well as to lead changes.
Parallel Session 2A - Relearning the Past
Future advancement does not happen in a vacuum, it is grounded on the past. New curatorial approaches and strategies allow the stories and values of ancient artefacts to be rediscovered and to take on a new life.
Parallel Session 2B - Addressing a Diverse Community
Museum is a key cultural driver for understanding and exchanges. Embracing an increasingly dynamic community, to interpret local heritage in an inclusive and engaging way to facilitate dialogues and build bonds between people is thus a constant challenge.
Parallel Session 2C - Localisation vs. Globalisation
Located at multiple crossroads, museum is at the same time home for preservation of local legacy and a stage for international innovation. To play its dual role well, different ways of bridging between the local and the global should be referenced.
