Conférence: « What Museums Post Pandemic ? » d’Amareswar Galla

Dans le cadre du cycle de conférences « Crises et musées », l’IPAC et le CÉLAT vous convient virtuellement le vendredi 5 novembre 2021, à 11h, à la conférence « What Museums Post Pandemic ? », présentée par Amareswar Galla, titulaire de la UNESCO Chair on Inclusive Museums and Sustainable Heritage Development, professeur de l’Inclusive Cultural Leadership, directeur de l’ICICL et doyen de la Faculty Development and Leadership à l’Anant National University.

Voici un aperçu de la conférence qui sera donnée en anglais et sur la plateforme Zoom :

« COVID-19 incumbency has revealed the vulnerability of the museum sector in the world. ICOM, UNESCO and NEMO reports profile the severity of challenges faced by museums globally. This increased pool of knowledge makes it glaringly obvious that we must confront the insularity that is akin to being oblivious to our constituencies; become relevant to the people in their cultural and linguistic diversity; and address gross inequities of participation in the museum sector that pervade every corner of the world. While in the affluent localities of the world, museums are rolling out measured approaches to reopenings and enabling digital sprawling, there are many museums in almost every country that are closed, hopefully not forever. So what is the aspirational museum post pandemic? How can the museums becoming more relevant, inclusive, and grounded in the social, economic, and environmental realities of their respective contexts continue to be the biggest challenge? ( How can the post-pandemic museum become the quintessential civic space? How can it be understood both museologically and from a rights-based discourse embedded with accountability to race, ethnicity, colour, indigeneity, gender, class, age, sexual orientation and so on? How best can we ensure that the hard-won rights-based approaches to inclusion, equality, diversity, return, restitution, repatriation, and cultural democracy are not forgotten? How do we, once again, raise the awareness of international financial institutions such as the World Bank, IMF and ADB about the criticality of culture and museums in sustainable development? »
