INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE TO AFRICAN MUSEUM DIRECTORS MENTORING WORKSHOPS ON COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT AND GOVERNMENT RELATIONS Regional Forum
Wednesday 8 February 2023 at 15.00 CAT
Wednesday 15 February 2023 at 16.00 CAT
The very successful and well attended Africa Director’s Forum in November 2022, led by Professor George Abungu, provided Africa’s leading museum professionals with an opportunity to exchange experiences and discuss key issues facing them.
In particular, two themes emerged which are of principal concern to the participants:
1. Engaging meaningfully with government and stakeholders
2. How to develop an audience centred approach to community engagement
The Forum’s breakout sessions were a rich source of actionable ideas and experience which came from the participants. We are keen for this experience to be shared in greater detail and it is therefore with great pleasure that we invite you to the next phase of the ICOM INTERCOM Solidarity Project LEADERSHIP ALERT – CAPACITY BUILDING FOR FUTURE MUSEUM SCENARIOS – two Africa Museum Director’s Mentoring Workshops which have been organised with our delivery partners, Fundacion Typa from Argentina. The Africa Museum Director’s Mentoring Workshops are free to participate in and will provide you with an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other museum directors.
