Déclaration de solidarité pendant la pandémie de Coronavirus

 

 

En tant que chercheurs, praticiens et décideurs de musées confrontés à la situation globale sans précédent due au Covid-19, nous voulons saisir ce moment pour réfléchir au rôle des communautés de musées et des musées communautaires dans le monde, tel que nous l'avons expérimenté à travers le projet EU-LAC Musées, du programme l'Horizon 2020.

Au nom de ce projet et de ses mentors ICOM Europe et ICOM Amérique Latine et Caraïbes, nos pensées vont en premier lieu et surtout aux familles qui ont perdu trop tôt des êtres chers ou qui sont confrontées à des difficultés personnelles, aux gouvernements qui font face à des changements rapides et aux professionnels de la santé qui répondent si héroïquement à la pandémie.

Le monde des musées connaît maintenant sa propre crise : les financements futurs et les infrastructures sont en danger et des décisions difficiles doivent être prises à tous les niveaux [lien à la déclaration de l'ICOM]. Et pourtant, l'expérience acquise au cours de notre programme a montré que les musées sont bien plus que des édifices traditionnels, des collections et des pratiques établies de conservation : ils sont porteurs de valeurs de développement social, culturel et environnemental, autant qu'économique [lien avec la nouvelle résolution ICOM]. C'est à ces valeurs que nous pouvons nous référer dans un moment comme celui-ci, quand les communautés doivent travailler ensemble plus que jamais au bien commun, amenant le musée en tant qu'institution à s'adapter et à devenir ce qu'il doit être en temps de crise, que ce soit un centre de distribution, un lieu d'accueil social, ou tout autre service dont la communauté peut avoir besoin.

Pendant la durée de son programme, EU-LAC Musées a rencontré des situations difficiles, telles que El Niño au Pérou en 2017, les ouragans au Costa Rica et dans les Caraïbes en 2017, les mouvements populaires au Chili en 2019, et maintenant l'annulation de dernière minute de notre Assemblée Générale de fin de programme au Costa Rica, à cause du Coronavirus. Aujourd'hui, les communautés sont en crise et tout au long de cette période, nous allons continuer à démontrer, par nos recherches et nos actions collectives, comment, grâce aux relations établies avec les communautés et les leaders locaux, nous pouvons travailler tous ensemble à surmonter les difficultés et à faire preuve de résilience.

WP8 D8.9 Compendium of Sustainable Community Museums (led by MNA/DGPC)

On Community and Sustainable Museums

Edited by Karen Brown, Peter Davis, Luís Raposo

The aim of this Book of Community and Sustainable Museums is to share the experience and knowledge of our project Advisors - Beatriz Espinoza, Hugues de Varine,Teresa Morales Lersch, and Peter Davis - concerning the key concepts and features of community and sustainable museums. They also provide reflections and didactic tools to suggest how a community might go about conceiving and creating a new community or ecomuseum if they so wished.

WP3: Chile Case Study (led by UACh)

Characterization of the Museums Network

Karin Weil, Laura Fuquene, Gustavo Blanco, Simón Urbina y Crsitobal Bize

This document is the result of field work carried out between May and June 2017, which aimed to facilitate the approach between the museums and cultural centers that make up the Network of Museums and Cultural Centers of Los Ríos Region, in order to know in greater depth their diverse realities from quantitative and qualitative aspects referring to territory, users and communities.
This research is presented in an exploratory way through an interpretative approach, analyzing qualitative and quantitative data with primary and secondary data sources.

WP4: Bi-Regional Youth Exchange

Experiences from the Bi-Regional Youth Exchange

Karen Brown, Jamie Allan Brown, Ronald Martínez Villarreal, Paula Menino Homem

This booklet shares a selection of the experiences from the Bi-Regional Youth Exchange between Europe and Latin America.
There is no time like the present to ensure young people have every opportunity to contribute to their communities, promote their heritage, participate in decision making and challenge the threats that they and their community may face.
The young people involved in this EU-LAC-MUSEUMS Bi-Regional Youth Exchange have demonstrated their capability of engaging in heritage, discussing the problems their communities face and finding solutions for the future.

EU-LAC-MUSEUMS project

"Societal challenges can lead to opportunities if approached in the right way. Europe is currently undergoing a crisis of identity, seeking to define its past, present, and future position in relation to the wider world, and to consolidate regional cohesion across generations within a wider, global knowledge economy. EU-LAC-MUSEUMS, ICOM Europe and ICOM LAC are committed to the idea that fostering inter-cultural dialogue and creativity through their regional and community museums is fundamental to this process."

(Dr Karen Brown, EU-LAC-MUSEUMS Project Coordinator).

Museums for Social Inclusion and Cohesion


Characterize and promote the statements about historic and family memory, cultural identity and material/immaterial heritage which are emitted by the museums of the Region of Los Rios, and other museums situated in member countries from the EU-LAC Museum Consortium. Pursuing the promotion of ancestral knowledge, the bi-directional transmission of knowledge and principles between the communities-museums-universities, and strengthening the working relationship of the network of Museums.

Technology and Innovation for
Bi-Regional Integration

By allowing local community museums to create a network with other similar organisations, in both LAC and EU, our project, and in particular this work package, will significantly promote and aid the development of mutual knowledge and understanding of peoples, through digital (namely web) and physical in situ means. Museums are an invaluable tool in this process due to their capacity to connect the remote/digital with the present/physical understanding of the world, both in terms of its similarities and diversities.

Virtual exhibition

This exhibition presents the Project fundaments, the Consortium and a set of selected Community Museums in each partner’s country or region. It is intended to be both a disseminating as a challenging tool: all suggestions allowing us to improve our data bases of community museums in the entire EU-LAC regions are most welcomed.

EU-LAC-MUSEUMS Project also strongly incentivizes possible interested users to digitally disseminate this exhibition. All museums or similar institutions wanting to print in real size and present this exhibition are kindly invited to inform the Project (Email: eulacportugal@gmail.com), so to get permission and potentiate possible common interests.

 

 

 

 

 

 Manual on creating 3D objects

The research team at St Andrews have produced a Manual on creating 3D objects for community museum use. The aim of the manual is to instruct local people in how to make 3D objects using photogrammetry in particular. The manuals have been researched during and used alongside workshops in the EU-LAC project, and afterwards by community groups continuing to digitise and send data to the project.

Objects, following certain criteria, are picked by museum staff to either be 3D scanned or photogrammatised. Scanning can be done only if the necessary equipment is available, which lends photogrammetry to be the preferred affordable method. Images are sent through open source software that creates a 3D file which then can be archived and uploaded to a social archiving site such as Sketchfab.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Virtual 360º tours gallery

Virtual tours of cultural museums allow first time visitors to explore new cultures as well as enabling previous residents to revisit and explore their family’s past.

Using the social archiving site Round.Me, 360 degree photographs taken through museums can be linked together creating an immersive tour. The site allows hotspots to be added within the scenes, which can handle text, audio, images and video. The finished tour can be embedded into a website or viewed through the Round.Me site. The archiving site also takes in analysis of views, followers and comments so basic visitor data can be quantified.
