NEMO Webinar | Museums as intercultural spaces: Exploring new paradigms

30 November 2016 | Simona Bodo

In what ways can museums serve as places for intercultural dialogue? To which extend can they influence intercultural dialogue? What are useful examples or case studies? How can museums benchmark diversity management?

These questions and more were answered by Simona Bodo during the webinar Museums as intercultural spaces: Exploring new paradigms on 30 November 2016.

Simona Bodo, independent researcher and consultant, provided an overview of existing, more "traditional" responses of museums to the growing diversity of their audiences. Following the introduction, she dealt with experimental strands of practice that are questioning the notion of "intercultural work" in museums and concluded with the introduction of a benchmarking tool for diversity management in cultural institutions, which she helped develop in the framework of the project "Brokering Migrants' Cultural Participation", funded by the DG Home Affairs of the European Commission.
