Nature et planète : en parler, l’exposer, s’en inspirer

Nature et planète : en parler, l’exposer, s’en inspirer

Rencontres muséo Paris – « Les musées à l’heure de l’urgence environnementale »

Commissaires du cycle : Diane DrubayLaurence Perrillat et Julie Botte

Face à l’interdépendance des crises que nous vivons, qu’elles soient sociales, environnementales, climatiques et de la biodiversité, il devient crucial que les politiques et pratiques muséales aient un impact sur notre futur. L’ambition de ce programme de trois rencontres est de donner des clés de compréhension et d’activation de projets faisables et durables. Nous débuterons avec un état des lieux des différentes portes d’entrée de la transition écologique, puis nous pencherons sur le cas précis des expositions temporaires et comment l’économie circulaire nous permet d’alléger l’une des activités principales des musées, et enfin, comment la nature inspire les artistes tout autant que les professionnels des musées.

Nature et planète : en parler, l’exposer, s’en inspirer

29 juin 2021- 18h-20h – En ligne

Nous parlons de crise environnementale mais savons-nous parler de la nature et de la planète ? La connaissons-nous assez pour pouvoir imiter ses principes et comment régénérer au lieu de consommer ? Comment faire pour que les musées deviennent ces caisses de résonance des défis sociaux et environnementaux, incarnent des principes de la nature dans leurs pratiques, valorisent artistes engagés lanceurs d’alerte, offrent une plateforme de discussion et de débats pour inspirer le changement ?

Connaissez-vous le vrai coût d’une exposition temporaire ? Que ce soit à travers la scénographie, les transports d’œuvres et des équipes, les fournisseurs ou matériaux utilisés, appliquer une approche circulaire sur la production des expositions temporaires et itinérantes est crucial pour réduire l’impact environnemental des musées.

Comment s’engager pour la planète ?

27 avril 20201 – 18h-20h – en ligne

Comment s’engager dans une démarche plus durable ? Comment lancer son musée dans une transition écologique aujourd’hui cruciale pour s’assurer un avenir meilleur ? Il existe plusieurs portes d’entrée, et elles sont toutes bonnes. Que la transformation passe par un changement au niveau individuel ou systémique, à travers un nouveau vocabulaire ou de nouvelles pratiques, à des fins régénératives, artistiques ou activistes, s’engager pour la planète c’est avant tout célébrer le changement.

Cultural heritage and climate change

Cultural heritage and climate change
On March 19, the Fridays For Future Movement and Europeana Climate Action Group invite you to join a meeting to discuss collective climate action with a focus on steps that the cultural heritage sector can take to achieve this.

As a sector, a call to action is needed to fight against climate change, and work together to protect our planet. The programme will highlight and share the climate action work that has been done by cultural heritage professionals, as well as introduce a Climate Action Map where cultural heritage institutions and organisations can share their climate actions, whether small or large.

Global Climate Strike!

Global Climate Strike!
Museums For Future will take part in the #NoMoreEmptyPromises campaign by hosting an online #CuratorBattle with the theme #BiggestMouth. Are you in?
Show us the #biggestmouth of your collection in a Twitter or Instagram post!
Decision-makers are fast when it comes to applauding and promising Climate Action.
But besides a big mouth, we need real action … so we decided to approach this with a
pinch of humor. Find an object with the most spectacular mouth in your collection (as
an individual find big-mouthed artworks and link the museum), post it with the hashtag #BiggestMouth, nominate other institutions or people and help us get the message out for #NoMoreEmptyPromises.

Take a look at the Museum Climate Action Day Map shared by The ENA Climate Group & We Are Museums and join their Climate Strike Day Online Event on March 19th. Come, network, hang out, and get inspired by other institutions on how they are trying to become a role model in fighting the biggest crisis of our time.

MAK highlighting sustainability

MAK highlighting sustainability

The Museum of Applied Arts (MAK) in Vienna, a first-hour MuseumsForFuture partner, presents their 2021 program, which again highlights on issues of sustainability, high-quality craftsmanship and longevity of products, local production, and social responsibility.

The essay elaborates on the MAK initiative WIENER WERKSTÄTTE (Viennese Workshop) and the concept of CLIMATE MODERNITY.

“2021 will be a key year for setting the course for an ecologically and socially sustainable future in the Digital Age. Never since 1945 has the future been so open, never before has it been within our power to change so much in a positive direction.”

Welcome, Museum Niederösterreich!

Welcome, Museum Niederösterreich!

We are thrilled to announce that a new museum has joined our growing network: please welcome Museum Niederösterreich!

This wonderful museum already has a lot to be proud of concerning its commitments to sustainability, and they have no interest in stopping now.

The museum announced its support for the global Fridays For Future and Museums For Future movements in the November of 2019, and despite everything going on in the world this past year has opened a very special exhibition in the summer of 2020, entitled “Climate & Me.”

Image from the Museum Niederösterreich website, photo of the “Climate and me” exhibition. Read more about the exhibition here!

The exhibition will be on show until August 2021 in the museum’s House of Nature. For all those who will be able to visit the museum once cultural institutions re-open in Austria, making a trip to this well-founded, interactive exhibition will be well worth it!

In its mission statement, the Museum of Lower Austria has dedicated itself entirely to sustainability, and it has just become the second museum in the whole of Austria and the first in Lower Austria to be awarded the Austrian Ecolabel!

It is a great pleasure for us to officially welcome this sustainable museum to Museums For Future!

To learn more about the museum, visit their website, and follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

Advent, Advent, the earth is on fire … Climate Watch on the Window Sill

Advent, Advent, the earth is on fire … Climate Watch on the Window Sill

“Lights out, light a candle” on December 12th

“As part of a Climate Watch on the Window Sill, candles placed on European window sills can send a signal for the climate and solidarity – everyone acting individually, yet all together, too. Under the hashtag #klimawache2020, everyone can share their own contributions through social media, resulting in an online sea of lights, in line with the motto of “lights out, light a candle”.

The climate crisis has been pushed out of the spotlight of reports and discussions by COVID-19. All the more important, therefore, to raise awareness again. To this end, the Graz Natural History Museum, together with prominent partners and the wider population, is calling for a campaign throughout Austria, Climate Watch on the Window Sill, to take place from 6 pm on December 12th, the day on which the Paris Agreement on climate change was reached.

Anyone wishing to take part and send a signal should place a burning candle in their window for one hour or longer from 6 pm on December 12th and turn off the lights in the rooms inside. In order to make this communal climate watch on the window sill visible online, too, photos and videos can be shared on social media under the hashtag #klimawache2020.”

Read more about the action and get your candles ready!
