Every year since 1977 International Museum Day is organised worldwide around May 18. The theme of this edition is Museums in a Changing World. New challenges, New inspirations, which invites museums and their visitors to wonder about the role of museums in our society, in an era of numerous changes: IMD2012 is as much about museums growing and shaping their future, as it is about displaying and interpreting new issues like climate change, new media or social responsability.
Activities around the world
International Museum Day is also an opportunity for museum professionals to meet their public, organising dedicated activities around the theme. For instance:
-In Brazil, the museum of Modern Art in Sao Paulo has created an original programme combining art, technology and ecology in collaboration with the Escola de l’Auditório Ibirapuera, the Planetário Artistóteles Orsini, and the Escola de Jardinagem.
-In China, the Shaanxi History Museum de Xi’an is inaugurating the exhibition Digital Museums which will present the digital construction, display, conservation and exchanges of collections of museums in Shaanxi.
-In Lithuania, the Kaunas City Museum invites the visitors to develop their creativity and ecological
streak with the workshop “Don’t throw – create a miracle!” which combines creation and recycling.
