Newsletter 06/2016

Greetings from the participants at our 5th Learning Exchange hosted by the Icelandic Museum Association, which commences today!

It is June already...

...and NEMO would like to share with you its recent news.

On 1 June 2016 our webinar, in collaboration with NEMECH/MICC, on new digital tools and techniques for Cultural Heritage and Museums was attended by participants from 17 countries. Have a look at our next webinars to find out more about the upcoming topics!

We were also able to share with you "Museums, migration and cultural diversity – Recommendations for museum work"! The recommendations give concrete and hands-on instructions for museums to find a multi-perspective and multicultural approach to their work and their collections in order to contribute to a healthy and diverse society.

NEMO members can still apply until 30 June 2015 for our upcoming Training Course Does the business thinking approach end the era of 'traditional museums' or does it set the museum free? on 30 September in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Lastly, don't forget to check back regularly for updates about our upcoming annual conference Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums on our website!

Happy reading!
