Description

Under the broad theme of Our Many Europes (2018 - 2022), this project sets out to explore the ways in the 1990s created the conditions under which Europeans live today. The project proposes a space for art within a non-hierarchical and decentralised internationalism, based on the value of difference and horizontal exchange among a constellation of cultural agents, locally rooted and globally connected.

OME will focus on audience development and transnational mobility especially that of museum staff and artists who will improve their professional skills through peer learning. The programme includes exchange of cultural heritage, professional expertise and will disseminate its best practices internationally via free e-publications.

Testimonial from Irish Partner

By exploring the 90s, through a rich programme of conferences, exhibitions and experimental mediation, OME partners will develop a new, effective museum strategy tailored to the desires of Europeans today.’
