On 19 June 2018, 872 people joined NEMO and its partners at the Museum for Communication Berlin to celebrate museums and cultural heritage at the event A Museum Night Out – Dance at the Museum! See photos from the beautiful evening here.

Earlier on the same day, the conference Cultural Heritage Communities and Audiences in Today’s Digital Environment gathered 60 professionals in the Museum for Communication. Both events were organised within the framework of the European Cultural Heritage Summit – Sharing Heritage/ Sharing Values; the most visible event organised in Europe within the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.

Jonathan Eaton and Mirian Bllaci discussed difficult heritage when facilitating the webinar From Mines to Mind-Maps: A dialogue-based approach to museum planning at Spaç Prison, on 25 June 2018. Watch the last NEMO Webinar by clicking here.
