International Museum Conference
MUSEUMS, YOUTH, ACTIVISM
The Gallery of Matica srpska, February 6‒7 2020
Museums, youth and activism are three words that usually don’t go together. As museum educators and experts, we are often confronted with this fact and through our work we put a great effort of bonding them. Having this in mind, the international museum conference in the Gallery of Matica srpska has the aim of bringing various practices from all around Europe and making a platform for the exchange of experiences, ideas and challenges on these topics. Furthermore, Novi Sad and Serbia will be the place where museum professionals from the country and region can have the opportunity to hear and connect with colleagues from France, Italy, Malta, Poland, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia.
As Novi Sad held the title of the European Youth Capital in 2019 and it is preparing for the title of European Capital of Culture in 2021, the beginning of this year is the perfect time to rethink about the role of museums in our society and discuss about youth and activism in the museums.
