WORKSHOP 1

Truth in Storytelling – Relevancy in Our Communities

How can cultural organizations lead the way towards authenticity? Can re-envisioning our organization’s mission, educational philosophy, or program goals affect what we mean to our community? Can telling the truth, in an unfiltered way, improve people’s lives?

WORKSHOP 3

Everything Authoritarian or Absolutist Is Symmetrical

According to the German Johannes Cladders, the museum should be asymmetrical. According to the Italo-Brazilian Lina Bo Bardi, the museum should be an anti-museum, and for Werner Hoffmann, the museum should be a permanent workshop. What could be a relevant institutional program to deal with contemporary times?
