2008 — Local Museums Festival

Local Museum Festival 2008
Monday 3rd – Wednesday 5th November, 2008
Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn Anthropology Centre (Public Organization)

The Local Museum Festival aims to create a forum for knowledge-sharing and capacity building among museum operators and to promote awareness of Thailand’s diverse local museums among the general public. Representatives from 75 local museums nationwide present their stories and display precious objects and local artifacts from community-based and private collections.

During the three-day festival, local museum operators, museologists and museum curators will have the opportunity to share their experiences on museum practices and building cultural networks. The program discussion is organized into four themes as follows:
1) Learning from International Experiences of Local Museums,
2) Capacity building for Small to Medium-sized Museums
3) Local Museums and Networking, and
4) Local Knowledge in Museums: a Comparative Perspective

Within each theme, presentations will be given by a range of actors – curators, museum keepers, scholars, cultural workers-- in the Thai and international museum world.
