Open Museum aims to make museums aware of how important it is to make room for the voices of under-represented audiences in their spaces. In order to do so, a structural policy needs to be developed around:
- the staff employed in the museums
- the audience engagement of the museums
- the programming and collection presentations of the museums
Open Museum wants to turn museums into safe spaces where everyone feels welcome, regardless of gender, skin colour, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, level of education and age.
We are rolling out this project in collaboration with numerous associations that are actively involved in social cohesion. Are you such an association, a potential partner, a museum or do you simply want to know more about the project? Feel free to contact Gladys, coordinator of Open Museum.
