New Delhi: With the theme “Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion”, International Museum Day 2020 aims at becoming a rallying point to both celebrate the diversity of perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell.
“It is so miserable to note that all the museums of the World are closed owing to the lockdown because of Covid 19 and it is the right time for every museum to go digital. Probably the traffic on net will go much higher and thousands of lovers will be able to visit best of the museums of different countries,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah President of International Chamber of Media And Entertainment Industry celebrating World Museum Day at AAFT University of Media And Arts on line.
The potential of museums to create meaningful experiences for peoples of all origins and backgrounds is central to their social value. As agents of change and trusted institutions, there is no time like the present for museums to demonstrate their relevance by engaging constructively in the political, social, and cultural realities of modern society.
