...we celebrated NEMO's selection for co-funding by the Creative Europe Programme for 2017-2021! Being among the 28 selected projects, we are excited to take NEMO a step further and will share more with you in the next weeks.

...the G7 cultural ministers met in Florence, Italy. In their joint declaration they condemned the destruction of cultural sites and called upon the international community to intensify their fight against the illegal trafficking of cultural goods.
