During the current times, museums are in a watershed, it’s the time that they will determine their identity and dynamic. Museums are changing, growing, reforming and evolving towards an inclusive, open, socially aware, creative and educational cell.
In times of new challenges that thousands of museums around the world are facing, immediate response and adaptation is essential so that they can function smoothly and ensure their viability. Responding to this volatile landscape, the Museum Collections of the Ionian University are organising a conference under the title Postmodern University Museums and the Digital Era. The conference is digitally held with participants specialists from European university museums who are known for their rich research work, contribution to the extroversion of their collections and presentation of common features in terms of collaborations, programs and Museum policy. The main goal is a creative dialogue among University Museums, in order to bridge communication as well as to share practices of sociability and sustainability.
