From 16-19 November 2020, we will meet online to explore the important role museums play in translating the complex to the digestible.

Join us for an inspiring four days online conference divided into morning and afternoon sessions. In sessions, panel discussions and webinars we will discuss how museums help people make sense of the world. We will get social in online receptions, museum tours and a museum themed pub-quiz.

NEMO European Museum Conference 2020 – Museums making sense will discuss how museums can help visitors make sense of complicated matters – be it climate change or migration processes or economic relations. Through storytelling methods, museums can help us understand complex interrelations. Multiperspective approaches can help us appreciate different perspectives. Museums can work as innovative labs to test different complex scenarios, giving the opportunity to find answers for questions like: How do we want to live? How could the future look like?
