The Sustainable Future of Museums of Archaeology and History

Do the societies consider history and archaeology museums as “old fashioned” institutions? Is digitalization only way to make them up to date? Obviously not! The content obtained by their collections is the real power of those museums. We will discuss about how to connect the knowledge of material evidences from the past with the contemporary issues that communities are facing such as climate change, global health, migration, and wellbeing, economic and political crises.

The Power and Challenges of Historical and Archeological Museums to connect the communities

The World is changing. Nations and local communities are more concentrated on their own histories and museums as well. The past is past and material evidence of local communities is already part of “universal collections”. We will discuss how the collections belonging to different localities of the world, which are already in the “universal collections” have the potential to create cultural communication models today. Communication models that unite different societies will be presented with practices developed through joint exhibitions, educational programs, scientific events, publications and digital media use.

The dispersed ancient and modern African Collection & the Global Community

African collections reveal an extraordinary cultural impact, considered as the source of knowledge. Over the decades, thousands of African collections have been taken out of their homelands and displayed in museums around the world. The new national African states start to request the return of their heritage. The African collections looted during the periods of slavery, empire and colonialism are essentials for the African communities to revisit and re-engage with these important aspects of African history. This session will focus on the ancient and modern African collections by their provenance histories, their evolution on display and communication practices.
