An interdisciplinary two-day conference, entitled "Culture for all: Museums and monuments without exclusions", is organized on November 29-30 by the Department of Educational Programs and Communication of the Directorate of Archaeological Museums, Exhibitions and Educational Programs.
The two-day event will be hosted in Athens in the amphitheater of the Directorate of Documentation and Protection of Cultural Property (33 Agioi Asomaton and Psaromiligou, in Thiseio) and will be open to the public.
Its purpose is to make public to the scientists but also to the general public the results of the various communication and educational activities, which were designed in recent years by the Museums and the Ephorates of Antiquities of the Ministry of Culture, addressed to socially excluded categories (disabled , refugees, economic migrants, detainees in detention facilities, the mentally ill, drug addicts, etc.), who due to their social, cognitive, psychological or other peculiarities are usually outside the policies of managing and "reading" the cultural of goods.
At the same time, the aim of the two-day conference is to utilize the experience gained from the implementation of the above actions, in order to create the basis for the development of systematic initiatives that will address groups in common with the stigma of social exclusion, seeking to reduce the catalytic sense of isolation they experience.
