BALTMUS Annual Network Forum 4th - 8th April 2018 in Gdynia City Museum.

 The 2018 Annual Forum of Network of Museums took place in Gdynia City Museum between April 4th and April 8th, 2018. This forum marks the beginning of three-year presidency period for Gdynia City Museum. The task of coordinating the operations of the network bring excitement and expectation of an interesting challenge.

Forum gathered 32 representatives of 11 of the institutions gathered in the Network and five local museums. The first day of the Forum was devoted to the host institution. Our guest were given a curatorial tour of the exhibition “Gdynia – an Open Work”, the core exhibition of Gdynia City Museum. The tour was conducted by Ms. Agata Abramowicz, the Deputy Director of the Museum and one of the curators of the core exhibition. Later they took part in the opening event of the exhibition “Co Widzisz?” (What Do You See?), which uses a great selection from the vast photo collections of Gdynia City Museum to illustrate various roles of photography and the types of human perception. During the event the members of the forum were greeted by the Director of Gdynia City Museum, Dr. Jacek Friedrich, and the Deputy Mayor of Gdynia, Ms. Katarzyna Gruszecka-Spychała.

The second day, Friday 6th April, was devoted to the conference. First Dr. Łukasz Jasiński presented the international exchange framework entitled “Common Sea – Common Museums”, aimed at promoting peer-to-peer exchanges between the member institutions of the Network. Further discussions concentrated on two key subjects, pre-selected by the guest in an online query: Art, history, education – how to achieve synergy between different activities? And How to appeal to the visitors? In the ensuing discussions the members of the Forum agreed that while multiplying various programs aimed at attracting more visitors to the museums is effective, sometimes it might result in heavy pressure on the museum workers. During the conference Ms. Ulrika Mebus (Gotland Museum), who had coordinated the Network, presented the annual report of the forum and a few remarks of encouragement to the new coordinators from Gdynia.

On Saturday 7th April the members of the conference were invited to join a workshop on the “What Do You See?” exhibition, conducted by its curator, Ms. Agnieszka Pajączkowska. Our guests were given a unique insight into the aims of the exhibition and were encouraged to provide their insights on various elements of the exhibition. Later the group travelled to Gdańsk to visit the European Solidarity Centre, located on the site of the Gdańsk Shipyard famous from workers’ protests against Communist oppression in 1980.

Sunday, 8th April was an extra-curricular day for some of the guests. The programme included a visit in the Emigration Museum in Gdynia, where a curatorial tour was given by Dr. Michalina Petelska, one of the creators of the exhibition. The visit in this modern, narrative museum marked the end of the Annual Forum in Gdynia.

Gdynia City Museum takes the three-year presidency of the Network. We do hope that the success of the April Forum will be a good omen for the next tree years of Forum’s operations.

Cultural heritage encompasses resources from the past in a variety of forms and aspects.

2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development

The United Nation has designated 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development.

This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the contribution of sustainable tourism to development among public and private sector decision-makers and the public, while mobilizing all stakeholders to work together in making tourism a catalyst for positive change. The museums are very imoprtant actors in this respect!
