France Muséums organises in the France Pavilion “Les Rencontres” by France Muséums, a day dedicated to imagine the future concept of museums, their role and their place in our society.

 

[9:00-12:00] Masterclass 

In partnership with Chargeurs Museum Solutions

France Muséums, in partnership with Chargeurs Museum Solutions, is organizing a Masterclass for museum professionals. On this occasion, experts and participants will question together the advantage for each discipline to work closely from the very beginning of a project – vertically integrating knowledge, skills and experiences – and push boundaries to capture the museum visitor experience’ as a whole.

We will provide participants with the opportunity to learn from case studies presented by internationally renowned experts, with whom they will be able to exchange views. The purpose of this experience-sharing session is to provide a platform for innovative ideas to emerge and new perspectives to be explored, which will later contribute to shaping the museum of the future.

 

[14:00-18:00] Symposium

With the support of UNESCO.

France Muséums shares the conviction that museums are a considerable political asset. At the different levels of intervention, they constitute, beyond a formidable lever for development, an increasingly recognized player in living together in the different societies in which they are rooted. Their fundamental mission of protecting and enhancing heritage in the service of future generations does not reduce them to a cosmetic or superficial role. On the contrary, it qualifies them to assume a role of unprecedented long-term general interest, in areas already well identified (economy, tourism, territorial development), as well as in more unexpected areas (diplomatic, urban planning and social).

The renewed encounter of treasures from different cultures, past or present, near or far, with other audiences is indeed a remarkable opportunity for mutual understanding and personal and collective questioning of values: a crucial tool for tolerance. To achieve this, museums are more than ever listening to the expectations of increasingly heterogeneous audiences. Their success will depend in their capacity to create and implement more demanding, innovative museographies adapted to different societal contexts which are increasingly fragmented, especially in a post-sanitary crisis period. The speakers at the symposium will discuss these major issues and share their perception of the museum of tomorrow.
