NEMO, the Network of European Museum Organisations, has published "Revisiting the educational value of museums: Connecting to Audiences", documenting NEMO's 23rd Annual Conference, 5-7 November 2015, Pilsen, Czech Republic.
This publication invites readers to take a step back and look at the developments of the field of education in museums, particularly with regard to a wide diversification of audiences. Examples from countries with different educational traditions, among them from the Czech Republic, the Nordic and Baltic countries, Poland and Portugal, show that museums are developing from information disseminators to more inclusive environments fostering and supporting intercultural dialogue, participation and empowerment.
Perspectives of colleagues from museum networks beyond Europe extend the views and emphasise the common thread of a social dimension included in educational programmes.
