A presentation of the #MuseumWeek for students attending a seminar of museology organized by the famous Ecole du Louvre.
About the seminar :
The seminar is geared towards advanced foreign students or young professionals. Its aim is to offer complementary training to a curriculum in art history, cultural heritage or museology. For its 12th edition, it will focus on writing in the museum: whether it be traditional or digital, written text usually accompanies temporary or permanent exhibitions and it is still the mediation tool which is most appreciated by the public. This seminar aims to analyze the forms and contents of these writings, in order to adapt them to their mission of educating and informing the public. One of the goals will be to define international standards. These are the major topics that we will be approached through theoretical lessons, round tables, meetings with professionals, and museum visits.
