CfP: Communicating The Museum 2017 Paris

For centuries, education was the privilege of an elite. Partly thanks to the internet, access to education has entered a process of democratisation.  More people are educated and therefore more people go to museums.  But in the meantime, expectations have changed: the public is looking for a social and an entertaining experience rather than an intellectual visit. The new Communicating The Museum (CTM) conference unites scholars, communication experts, fundraisers, and scientists to share genuine education programmes from all around the world to discuss the theme "The Power of Education". The conference is in Paris from 19th - 22nd June 2017. The deadline of all speaker applications ends on 3rd March 2017.

For many, education is a social responsibility, sometimes to raise funds, most of the time to reach communities and new audiences. According to the theme of the CTM 2017 and the transformed role of museums from a sanctuary of knowledge to a place of exchange of ideas, following questions will be considered: 

  • Has education become a communication strategy ? Is it still at the core of your mission?
  • How do you get educators, curators and communicants to work together?
  • How to address the needs of your community?
  • How can museums learn from their public?

The CTM will explore the new paradigms of education and the best ways to lead meaningful achievements. During 4 days, the 300 participants of the conference will analyse trends, share best practices and answer the following questions:

  • How do you get educators, curators and communicants to work together?
  • How to address the needs of your community?
  • How can museums learn from their public?
  • How can museum transform the field through learning, community building, and innovative practice?
  • How to train the current and future museum professionals?

The CTM programme inclucdes amongst others

  • keynotes, workshops and panel discussions to learn from the peers at the Louvre on the 1st day of the CTM
  • a Gala Reception at la Monnaie de Paris on the 2nd day
  • two SAFARI-days to discover four key Parisian institutions and to learn about their communication and education strategy on the 21st - 22nd of June

The CTM is looking for the latest trends and case studies in communications and education. Interesred parties can submit their idea for a keynote speech, learning session or panel discussion and complete all the information and upload the necessary documents. All papers and presentations must be in English.
