POLIN Museum and HL-Senteret would like to invite museologists and educators to a Polish-Norwegian seminar "Tools for Youth. How can museums and cultural institutions engage young audiences?".

  • Online seminar: March 23-24, 2022
  • Register here >>
  • Application deadline: March 22 (Tuesday)

The responsibility of cultural institutions increases as racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism are on the rise worldwide. So is the concern of youth involvement in public cultural activities.

Many museums find it challenging to appeal to the young audience. Why? Is it about content, language or values? Or is it about lifestyle or about the image of specific venues? Is what museums are offering so different from what young people live and breathe these days? Are museums doomed to operate in a generational bubble? How can you engage with young people to stimulate their curiosity and empathy, and encourage them to take a stance against xenophobia and discrimination?

The Polish Norwegian "Tools for Youth" seminar address these questions in lectures and workshops. We will review the latest data on youth and share the best practices of engaging with young people.

Participation in the event is free of charge.
