Seminar COMCOL Brazil
[Translate to Français:] On collecting – reflections from Brasil
[Translate to Français:] In Brazil, since 2015, COMCOL has given special emphasis to holding events, from informal meetings to seminars about relevant topics both to the Committee and to the Brazilian museum scenario. These themes are selected in the exchange of ideas in a broad discussion held by a group of 25 professionals from different areas and states.
In November 2015, thanks to the valuable support from our members and partners, we held the seminar COMCOL Brasil 2015 – Management and Development of Collecting, including a workshop carried out by the Dutch specialist Danielle Kuijten and two panels with representatives of diverse cultural institutions, including IBRAM (Brazilian Institute of Museums), Sao Paulo State Secretary of Culture, the Museums Manager of the Municipal Department of Culture of the City of Rio de Janeiro, Rubens Gerchman Institute, Immigration Museum, Indigenous Peoples Museum and others.
We are now sharing, to a broader audience, the ideas and practices presented at the seminar – revised and updated by the authors at the beginning of 2017. You can download the publication here or review it in issuu.
We hope they are as inspiring to you as they were to us.
