Upcoming Webinars

Museums, Health and Well being | REGISTRATION OPEN UNTIL 13 JUNE 2017

  • Many museum staff intuitively believe museums make a positive contribution to people's health and well being and are increasingly developing activities and projects which seek to enhance their impact. This webinar aims to look beyond individual projects and to make a strategic assessment of the potential contribution of museums to human well being. It will review the evidence for the health benefits of museum visiting, in the context of a broad history of how museums have related to public health in the past 150 years. Some public health academics argue that their field needs to enter a new phase in order to address the diseases of modernity (obesity, mental ill-health, lonliness). This new phase will require a more holistic approach based on fostering social trust and inclusive narratives which enhance people's sense of leading meaningful lives. The webinar will conclude with an assessment of the potential of museums to contribute to this emerging approach to public health.
  • facilitator: Mark O'Neill
  • 16 June 2017, 15.00h (CEST)
  • organised in cooperation with MICC - Media Integration and Communication Centre and NEMECH - New Media for Cultural Heritage

We will announce further webinars in July 2017.

  • The Creative Museum broadcast from Bologna, Italy on 8 October 2015 from 10:00-13:00
    The first outcomes of the EU funded project "Creative Museum" were introduced at the conference. The Creative Museum Project seeks to explore and inform the connections between cultural organisations and their communities by capitalising on the emergence of new and democratising digital technologies. Seeking to extend the language of engagement through the medium of accessible, customisable, and personal digital experiences, the project sees museums as dynamic learning environments in which staff and visitors can use accessible digital tools to explore and reason about collections in new and creative ways, also by connecting the Maker Community and digital industries with museums and museum practitioners. The Creative Museum Project is funded by Erasmus+ VET Vocational education and Training (2014-2017).
