Seminar Museum. Share!

We would like to invite you to participate in the seminar Museum Share!, which will be held on 24th October at the Museum. The event is aimed at leaders, educators, teachers and employees of cultural institutions as well as children and teenagers’ day support centres.

The seminar summarizes a two year long project which was conducted by the Emigration Museum in Gdynia together with the Perspektywa Association, Fundacja Zmian Społecznych “Kreatywni” and Non Stop Association, with the support of the city of Karlskrona and Stena Line.

During the seminar, you can find out more about the project Museum. Share!, its course, methods of operation and effects. It will also be a chance to participate in workshops and reflect on the ways to widen the circle of culture institutions’ recipients together. You can also gain knowledge in media education and establish new contacts, which could later result in joint projects.

The project Museum. Share! is aimed at the employees of Gdynia’s socio-therapeutic day centres and those in their care. As a part of the project, children prepared their own routes and gave tours of the permanent exhibition to their parents, teachers or friends. They were helped by media workshops on finding information in various sources as well as their critical assessment and presentation. The project’s goal was to develop the social and information skills in children and teenagers, strengthen the family bonds of the participants, integrate the local community and expand the group of the Museum’s offer’s recipients.

Participation in the seminar is free of charge. The event is in Polish. The organiser provides lunch and coffee breaks, however the participants have to travel and find accommodation at their own expense.

How to engage recipients?

Paulina Jędrzejewska, Karolina Pluta

The participants will have a chance to get to know the background of the project Museum. Share! It will be a platform for asking the Museum team and the staff of the support centres about the crucial aspects of the programme and find out what the largest successes of the project were, what was satisfactory, what was the biggest challenge and what simply did not go according to the plan. Together, we will think what is hidden behind the ideas of recipient engagement and participation at a cultural institution. Apart from the presentation of good practices, the aim of the workshop is to inspire other institutions and organisations to engage their recipients as well.

Media in educational activities

Grzegorz D. Stunża

The workshop is aimed at everyone who wants to gain basic knowledge on using media in cultural, social and educational activity. We will focus on the possibilities to use media in project activity and on improving the media and digital skills at cultural institutions, support centres and NGOs. We will talk about the ways children and teenagers can use media during cultural and education projects with the application of new communication technologies and we will devote some time to practical education in the use of media for education purposes.

2.15 PM – 3 PM – lunch

3.00 PM – 4.00 PM – Tour of the permanent exhibition given by the children who participate in the project

16.10 – 17.30

Networking – catching assets

Paulina Jędrzejewska, Karolina Pluta

What do we know about ourselves? Can we act together and how can we do it? What is the strong side of our organisations, institutions and teams? What methods do we use while we work and how can we exchange them? As we sum up the project Museum. Share! we offer you a networking meeting, which is supposed to provide an occasion for knowledge exchange among the participants of the event. We would like to build a base for further professional activities, which aim at engaging participants and help institutions reach new groups of recipients. The aim is to begin creating a network of contacts, thanks to which participants will be able to use one another’s experience, methods of work, advice and support or organise initiatives, which develop the idea behind Museum. Share!
