The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology was established in 1995 and officially opened to the public since 1997. The museum carries out the mission of scientific research, collecting, inventorying, preserving artifacts, organizing exhibitions, performing and operating educational activities to contribute to the preservation of cultural diversity of ethnic groups in Vietnam, Southeast Asia and around the world.

 

CONFERENCE PURPOSE

Exhibition is one of the most important aspects of museum's work, promoting other works. Therefore, exhibitions always require high scientificity, aesthetics and updates with the development level of science and technology in each country. Museum's exhibitions are a bridge connecting the public and museum artifacts. Without exhibits, a museum is just a storehouse, an archive of systematized collections. The development of ideas and exhibits as well as the renovation of exhibitions play a significant role in museums, especially in the context of modernization and international integration. Therefore, VME plans to organize an international conference on Methods of Organizing Exhibitions.

The Conference is a scientific forum aiming at exchanging and updating the concepts, methods and new trends in exhibition work of museums among national and international experts in Vietnam as well as around the world in the direction of modern approaches and international integration. Thereby, it will make an important contribution to improving the Museum's staff capacity, drawing lessons for Vietnamese museums in general and for the VME in particular to appropriately and effectively apply to the renovation of museums for a future sustainable development.

 

The Conference focuses on three key themes as follows:

Firstly, approaches in developing exhibitions (museological/ethnological/anthropological approaches, community-participatory approach, community-based approach, educational exhibitions, artistic/aesthetic value featured exhibitions, exhibitions using 4.0 technology and multimedia, virtual exhibitions, etc.).

Secondly, new trends in organizing exhibitions in the world and in Vietnam.

Thirdly, lessons learnt for the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology.
