On Monday, November 21, at 13:00, in Kyiv, Ukraine Crisis Media Center (Ukrainian House on European Square, 2 Khreschatyk Str.,) will host a press conference on the launch of the project “Under construction: Museum open” on the basis of the local history museums of Slovyansk and Lysychansk.
The project “Under construction: Museum open” is innovative and experimental. The project aims to recognize the work of the local history museums of Slovyansk (Donetsk region) and Lysychansk (Luhansk region) and to intensify their activities. The main idea of the project is to turn the museums into modern culture centers that are actively involved in the life of their cities, form the humanitarian policies of their regions, and carry out research, education and public awareness activities. “Under construction: Museum open” is a research project, which will enlist the cooperation of museum curators, Ukrainian and international artists and experts, provide the museums with modern technical equipment, organize training for the museum staff, develop and implement a PR concept for each museum. The project will result in arranging the exhibitions, a number of training activities for the museum staff and visitors, as well as methodological recommendations for the further development of the museums. The project will last from November 2016 to March 2017.
