NEMO European Museum Conference 2020 - Museums making sense will discuss the important role museums play in translating the complex to the digestible – be it climate change or migration processes or economic relations. Through storytelling methods, museums can help us understand complex interrelations. Multiperspective approaches can help us appreciate different perspectives. Museums can work as innovative labs to test different complex scenarios, giving the opportunity to find answers for questions like: How do we want to live? How could the future look like?

The conference is scheduled to take place from 15-17 November 2020 in Rijeka, Croatia. We are continuously assessing the situation to determine if we need to adopt a new digital format.
