“Tolerance – in the past and today” was the theme of the workshop, which took place in early September at the National History Museum, Sofia, Bulgaria
It launched a series of initiatives and events implemented under the slogan “One object – many visions – EuroVision”, which the museum prepared in the Laboratory “EuroVision”.
The chosen topic is not accidental – it is associated with preparing a new scenographic museum exhibition “The Fragility of tolerance.”
It is dedicated to the rescue of the Bulgarian Jews during the Holocaust and will be opened on November 9, 2015.
The workshop was organized specifically for young adults and aimed to provoke their attention to the problems associated with tolerance, acceptance of others, migrants “here and now”, Europe foreign or not?
One of the tasks for the young adults was to present their views on the vision and PR strategy for the forthcoming exhibition, which make it more attractive and adaptable for visitors with special needs and people who normally do not visit museums.
The workshop was attended by young representatives of organizations associated partners in the project “EuroVision. Museums exhibiting Europe.” – Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, New Bulgarian University, Youth Historical Community,
Association “B.I.T.I. E.” and the Ministry of Culture.
Bulgarian students from the University of Aberdeen (Scotland) showed interest to the discussion and presented their views on the issues concerned.
Expressed opinions, suggestions and initiatives identified were interesting, constructive and will be taken into account by the museum’s experts in the preparation of the exhibition and the implementation of the advertising campaign.
