World Platform for
and community museums
We aim at connecting all national Ecomuseum and Community Museum networks, existing or to be established, and all other heritage and landscape NGOs, in a virtual and interactive space.
Our purpose is the production of a multilingual documentary and a bibliographic pool of resources on ecomuseology and its best practices.
It is the metaphore used by Gerard Corsane at the 2016 ICOM General Conference.
This platform resembles drops of water which join into rivers and, through rivers, meet the sea and reach the world.
“Network drop” can also indicate the hub of a computer network.
What can you do?
Perhaps there are other ways to imagine the range of tasks needed to create change within the museum world, that will translate into positive cultural change within communities and human systems. Write us your suggestions and share your projects!
