Map for ID (Museums as places for intercultural dialogue)

2007-2009 - education

The project is supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union, aims to develop the potential and practice of museums as places of intercultural dialogue and to promote a more active engagement with the communities they serve. The project aims to:

  • Create a research group made up by the museums involved in the project to identify good practice case studies and analyse them with the intention of extracting the elements that make them commendable and transferable to other contexts;
  • Share the outcomes of the research group to European museum professionals via a written report and a conference (10 June 2008, Bologna);
  • Involve umbrella organisations to further disseminate these materials and initiate  and support 25 new projects at local, regional and national level that will put the guidelines developed by the research group into practice;
  • Analyse and disseminate the outcomes of the 25 projects through a final conference (13-17 October 2009, Madrid) and the publication of a new Handbook on Museums and Intercultural Dialogue.
