Museum Studies Seminars Session 3: Open Museums: Participatory Approaches

Project Coordinator: Dr. N. Hanzade URALMAN
Okan University, Chairman of Public Relations and Advertising Department

One of the issues in the agendas of museums is the participatory approaches which transform them into democratic areas from ivory towers. Today, museums contribute to democracy as transparent organizations which can produce with the communities around them, think and crate public opinions. The term open museum or inclusionary museum has been born in line with the participatory approaches of museums. The participatory approaches of museums are not only about the passive participation of people in the activities of museums, but they target making active participation possible in many different ways as well. Cultural participation is a categorical concept which involves people’s attending cultural activities, being involved in artistic and intellectual creation processes, cooperating with cultural organizations, taking a role in the decision making processes in the area of culture and interacting with each other. In this seminar, the implementation styles of active participation categories in museums will also be addressed.
