Museums with successful experience and/or specific projects related to the following tasks are invited to participate in the creation of the book:
- Social and cultural integration of migrants and refugees;
- Representation of issues of resettlement, displacement, movement (voluntary and forced) and involvement of the public in the reflection on these topics (including for understanding their own identity);
- Encouragement of the dialogue between representatives of different cultures, religions, ethnic groups and communities with different socio-cultural backgrounds;
- Promotion of the value of cultural diversity to the public (in particular, through the interpretation of the "migration history" of museum exhibits).
The project “Migration: Revealing the Personal” aims to strengthen museums' competence in solving the problem of negative attitudes to migration as well as discrimination of people with migration background and lack of conditions for their social adaptation in the Russian society.
More information about the book as well as the application procedure is available on ICOM Russia's website.
