SWICH

Museums, Citizenship and Belonging in a Changing Europe brings together scholars, curators and artists to think critically about the ways museums engage with complex and polarized debates on citizenship and belonging.

 

What should museums of ethnography collect today and for the future? This workshop will explore trajectories towards collaborative practices for collecting and documenting collections within ethnographic museums.

On May 26th and 27th, 2015, the Museo Nazionale Preistorico Etnografico “Luigi Pigorini” will be hosting the workshop “Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Museums: Visions and Experiences”.

Sharing a World of Inclusion, Creativity and Heritage: Ethnography, Museums of World Culture and New Citizenship in Europe (SWICH) is a four year collaborative project between ten 10 museums across Europe and funded by the EU’s Creative Europe funding program. The project explores the role that ethnographic and world cultures museums can play in processes of citizenship and belonging in contemporary Europe. The budget for the project is 2M Euros.
