We are delighted to bring you the second series of pre-conference webinar events in the run-up to the conference MUŻE.X – Shaping Museum Futures. Three international voices from the museum world shall be in conversation with the conference convenors Prof Carmel Borg and Dr. Sandro Debono. The one-hour conversations shall revolve around participatory practices, creativity in museums, and collections-development practices in response to the new realities imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic.
