From 25.10 until 30.10.2021, M would like to welcome you inside and outside the museum walls for the annual ICOM CECA conference. On Saturday 30.10, several fieldtrips are scheduled.
Four Belgian cities have prepared a wonderful and inspiring programme for you, full of museum visits and practical examples around the theme of co-creation. You will also have the opportunity to exchange experiences with other museum professionals and conference participants. It's up to you to choose what you want to immerse yourself in; you may register for just one city. More information on this offer can be found below.
Price for one fieldtrip is € 50, including transport to and from Leuven, coffee and lunch, travel costs within the city and entrance fees to the various museums.
08:00 | Meet at Leuven Station
08:15 – 09:30 | Train from Leuven to Antwerp, Ghent, Mons or Liège
In the afternoon, you can choose from a variety of offerings: FOMU, Museum Plantin-Moretus and the MAS invite you backstage and explain their most recent co-creative projects. Finally, you will get the chance to visit the renewed MoMu, in the form of a short guided tour through its functioning and its new exhibitions.
In the afternoon, you will get the chance to discover co-creation for yourself in one of the Ghent museums. Four museums (Museum of Industry, STAM, Museum Dr. Guislain and S.M.A.K) will take you on a tour of their museum.
Each museum has its own history and speciality so co-creation takes many forms and shapes, it's up to you to discover them!
MuseumLab is a place of co-creation, where the project leader works together with researchers, specialists, engineers, companies and visitors.
Come and discover this first Belgian incubation laboratory for experiments and development of new technologies! At the same time, visit the Artothèque, a unique place for the preservation of the entire museum heritage of Montpellier.
If participants wish, they can already come to Mons on Friday evening 29/10. We recommend that you stay at the Van Der Valk Hotel (located a few minutes' walk from the Mons railway station and the Artotheek). The colleagues from Mons will be happy to receive you and have dinner with you in the hotel.
Two museums in Liège give you an insight into their workings. In the morning, the Prehistoric Museum is on the programme and in the afternoon you are welcome at the Museum of Walloon Life.
