The Article of the Month

The Article of the Month - European Museum Academy

“Museums’ 4 Values – Values 4 Museums” is the title of a recent publication issued by NEMO , the Network of European Museum Organization with which we are frequently cooperating.  

NEMO  focuses on four strategic areas that are important for museums and the museum sector to position and to develop themselves in order to contribute and remain relevant for society: the Collection Value, the Educational Value, the Social Value and the Economical Value.
To highlight these values NEMO conducted a European-wide study among its members on how these values are implemented in the every day work of our museums. Over 80 examples from 22 countries were submitted and reviewed by NEMO’s Executive Board Members. In the end a selection of 22 examples has been documented in the present publication.

We are very grateful to NEMO and  Anne-Sophie Gutsche for making available this text of presentation of “Museums’ 4 Values – Values 4 Museums” .

It recognises excellence and innovation in exhibits designed for children within the museum sector. 

Applications are welcomed from children’s museums; from education children and youth departments in museums; and from specialist subject museums with a particular emphasis on children’s programming.  Museums may be long-established or recently opened.   However, priority is given to programmes which display recent innovation.  The project entered for the Award must be current and open for viewing in the judging year.

Building dynamic, inclusive and socially purposeful museums and archives. 

 Östersund, Sweden

NCK together with Research Centre for Museums and Galleries at University of Leicester offer a week-long Winter School that explores how we can develop museums and archives to be dynamic, inclusive and socially purposeful organisations. It will be led and facilitated by the Research Centre for Museums and Galleries (RCMG), based in the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester, and will include a mixture of presentations, guest speakers, active learning and international case studies. Students will also be encouraged to put their learning into practice in their current work context. The course is intended for anyone working in museums and archives who are interested in exploring and developing their institution’s social value, political relevance, and its resonance for communities.

The course is carried out with the support of European Museum Academy
