The RCMC also invites a more general public to get involved with our collections through debates, lectures, artist talks and film screenings. These public programs bring a wide array of stakeholders, including academics, artists, and performers, into conversation with our publics on selected themes.
Fifty years after the announcement of the closure of the mines in Limburg, 2015 has been declared the “Year of the Mines”. Throughout the year, a diverse program of expositions and other cultural events are organized in Limburg, but also elsewhere in the Netherlands. Anthropological films have featured prominently at events also due to the efforts of ‘Beeld voor Beeld’ and ’Cineblend’.
In collaboration with external partners the RCMC provides a platform for innovative research, experimentation and public engagement. Through various programs we seek to foster a space for active conversations around issues relevant to the museum and its collections.
