It’s hard to be museum professional in Poland. Yes, there are conferences or workshops conducted by various institutions. But it took until the conference of We Are Museums, held in June 2013 in Vilnius, to begin to organize a meetup Warsaw for museum professionals. Chillout meetings with beer in a “drinking about museums” style.
Metamuzeum is cyclical, usually held every month (unless it is -20 degrees outside) meeting in Warsaw and Krakow. They are designed to not only integrate the museum staff but also the dissemination of knowledge and good practice. Hence, in addition to part of “a networking” on every meeting there is a place for a short lecture on some interesting subject.
Metamuzeum is done in collaboration with the National Institute of Museology and Conservation of Collections and muzealnictwo.com
Announcements about the meetings can be found on Metamuzeum Facebook fanpage.
