"Community, solidarity, dignity and humanity are, for migrants and refugees, more than abstract notions; they are values that represent the promise of a more desirable future – a future that we have a duty to offer them." — Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO
For decades, museums of all types and sizes have created exhibitions about migration and immigration. In this webinar, representatives from Migration Museums in Australia, Italy, France, and the United States will discuss the process of rethinking permanent exhibitions to more fully reflect current issues around migration. They will share the need for re-thinking, the goals for new exhibitions, and the processes, including community engagement, undertaken to develop new exhibitions that - as the Director General of UNESCO notes above - represent opportunities for community, solidarity, dignity and humanity for all a nation's people.
