Live streaming. MINERVA Workshop: Institutional power of museums to transform the opinion of local communities towards young people at risk

The MINERVA Workshop is a two-day hybrid research network workshop that will take place at Bay Campus, Swansea University and online. The workshop will bring together leading academics and museum professionals from six institutions in the UK and throughout the EU and members of the UNESCO-OECD PASCAL Learning City Network who have wide-ranging specialisms in social activism, heritage, engagement, and economics. The workshop is led by Dr Annie Tubadji, Senior Lecturer in Economics and CHART member.

Together, the workshop participants will discuss the institutional power of museums (as traditional gatekeepers of local and global identity) to transform the opinion of local communities towards young people who are migrants and refugees. By empowering community engagement with the “otherness” of migrant inflows, the MINERVA Project has the potential to transform localised and polarizing negative cultural values regarding free movement, migration, and refugees in the European Union.

Join the live streaming on 20 June 2022 at 15:30 BST for a round table discussion by all participants with Q&A from the audience.
