From 16-19 November 2020, we will meet online to explore the important role museums play in translating the complex to the digestible. 

NEMO European Museum Conference 2020 - Museums making sense will discuss how museums can help visitors make sense of complicated matters – 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?

In view of how the pandemic is developing, we have decided to develop a completely new online format of the NEMO European Museum Conference. The new dates and adapted programme will soon be released.
