REACH Project at “Museums for all people!”

Share

CatturaMuseums for all people! This was the title of the international conference held from 2 to 5 April 2019 at Complutense University in Madrid. Keynote lectures, short talks and posters discussed the diverse and multi-layered dimensions of art and cultural heritage and in particular of the museum as an institution. The focus was in particular on the great diversity of the public and barrier-free access to culture. Further topics were: the relations between museums and universities, the use of new technologies as well as participative, integrative and cooperative projects. The majority of the presentations and discussions again highlighted the social importance and responsibility of museums. The congress offered valuable opportunities for an intensive exchange across countries and sectors, which will enable the further development of ideas on future museum work in theory, practice and politics.
