THE EMEE-MEETINGS AND CONFERENCES

 

THE FINAL CONFERENCE IN BRUSSELS

 

After almost four years of research on the ‘Change of Perspective’ as an innovative concept of European museum development, the EU cultural project ‘EuroVision – Museums Exhibiting Europe’ (EMEE) has come to an end in October of 2016. The project focused on history-related national and regional museums. With innovative and interdisciplinary approaches, based on History Didactics, EMEE developed multi-perspective ideas for re-interpreting museum objects from a European angle and for engaging visitors in museums in a participative way. To mark EMEE’s closure, the final conference One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions. New Ways for European History Museums in the 21st Century was held in Brussels from 27th to 29th September 2016, where the results – including the final publication The EU Project ‘Museums Exhibiting Europe’ (EMEE). Ideas, Results, Outlooks and the EMEE documentary film ‘One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions’ – were presented to the public.
