The National Network of Romanian Museums , in partnership with the Network of European Museum Organisations (NEMO) , is launching its first edition of the ”Museums Meet Museums”  international seminar, which will be held in Bucharest on 14-16 September 2017.
The aim of this museum seminar is to develop a dynamic and interactive environment for professional networking, not only in Romania but also in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. The event aims to gather a national and European audience of up to 300 participants.
The topic of this first edition is ”Opening up the Exhibition”. Issues such as the development of the exhibition’s content, how to interpret the collections, how to build the interdisciplinary exhibition team and the use of technologies on the benefit of the collections will be highlighted.
The seminar will offer to the wide audience a panel of first-class speakers as well as demonstration workshops. The speakers come from the award-winning museums of the past few years (e.g. the European Museum of the Year Award or the Micheletti Award), or those which have been celebrated for their architecture. It will also enjoy the presence of innovative museums with exhibitions that have changed many paradigms in how objects could be related or in how to engage local communities or creative communities for a total participatory museum.
Among the speakers are Nina Simon, who authored the books The Participatory Museum and The Art of Relevance and is the Executive Director at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art & History, as well as Michele Lanzinger, Chief Executive Director of the award-winning MUSE Science Museum in Trento, Italy.
