OPEN MUSEUM : Re-imagining museums as safe spaces

Can museums become safe spaces where everyone feels welcome, regardless of gender, skin colour, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, level of education or age?

During the Open Museum Conference, we discuss deconstruction of norms, inclusion, participation and redistribution of power.

To investigate the dynamics at play in our cultural institutions, our speakers will offer both hands-on and empathic insights, remembering that a museum does not only engage us intellectually but also emotionally and physically.

The conference is aimed at museum and culture professionals, students and curious alike.
