General Topic : A common Engagement Towards Effective Communication
Museum education is considered nowadays as one of the core functions of a museum. But how are the various messages to be delivered to the museum audiences conceived ? Where do the researchers, the curators and the educators meet ? How do each see their role as mediator ? How to operate the magic encounter which will allow any visitor to understand the most difficult topics needed to be able to enjoy the wonders exhibited in museums ?
For the first time two ICOM international committees – CECA / Committee for Education and Cultural Action and UMAC / Committee for University Museums And Collections – have decided to combine their efforts by organizing a joint conference in the outstanding venue of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina. They will discuss all the above issues so crucial for any researcher wanting to spread out their knowledge and all educators conscious of the importance of spreading messages which are both scientifically correct and accessible to the public at large.
