Creating a network among museum professionals in Jordan
UNESCO Office in Amman is hosting a series of seminars on various topics of museum management throughout 2011, in order to create a stronger network among museum professionals in Jordan and provide a forum for exchange of ideas in the field. Four seminars have already been held, and a further six planned, covering broad topics ranging from museum management to exhibition planning, to more specific areas such as museum security and conservation practices. Participants from each of Jordan’s museums are introduced to the topic by an international specialist, who then facilitates the often lively discussions. A booklet will be produced at the end of this year, outlining the major conclusions of each seminar, and ways to move forward in the sector.
