NEMO launches free trial memberships

Five museums or museum-oriented organisations will be granted free trial memberships to enjoy the benefits of a NEMO membership over the course of one year. Applications are welcome until 11 February 2022.

A membership in NEMO connects you with the European museum community as it promotes exchange and networking between international colleagues. Members get help in establishing cross-border collaborations and staying up to date with information about relevant EU policies and funding. As a member, you are also part of furthering political demands to the European Union. 

Additionally, the trial memberships include the opportunity to participate in NEMO’s training activities and to connect with likeminded people by joining one of NEMO's topic-specific Working Groups. The trial members will receive two complimentary tickets to the NEMO European Museum Conference

Julia Pagel, NEMO Secretary General, adds: “This initiative is beneficial to the trial members as well as to the whole network. We as a museum community grow stronger with every new member since they all contribute to the shared pool of knowledge and expertise. We are especially happy to offer this opportunity after two challenging pandemic years. Considering that the cultural sector has been hit especially hard, we want to show our support as well as offer advice and help.  

Museums and museum-oriented organisations with interest and experience in the topics of diversity & inclusivity and climate action are especially encouraged to apply for a trial membership. However, the opportunity is open for all interested and eligible museums, museum networks, organisations and service providers.  

Only museums or organisations located in the Member States of the European Council will be considered. Individual persons are not eligible to join NEMO. Trial members are not eligible to vote in the Annual General Meetings. This call will be the first of three rounds. The next calls will be published in January 2023 and January 2024.
