HERITΛGE trains Ukrainian Museum professionals

The Heritage Management Organization completed the first part of course training Ukrainian Museum professionals to help address the challenges posed by the war
ATHENS, Greece - May 16, 2024 - PRLog -- The Heritage Management Organization (HERITΛGE) (GR) is happy to announce the successful completion of the first part of "Digital museum: Storytelling, networks, and funding for Ukrainian museums", a training course for Ukrainian museum professionals. The course is part  of "Culture Helps / Культура допомагає" - a cooperation between Insha Osvita (UA) and zusa (DE), co-funded by the European Union.

Digital Museum offers free training to 32 museum professionals from 14 regions of Ukraine. HERITΛGE for the first part of its training modules has provided training on fundraising and digital storytelling, while experts from Ukrainian partner institutions (the Charitable Foundation Shevchenko Hai, the Klymentiy Sheptytskyi Museum of Folk Architecture and Life,  the NGO New Museum, the Museum Crisis Center, and the Territory of Terror Memorial Museum of Totalitarian Regimes) have trained participants on collection digitization, digital revitalization of exhibitions in small museums, online museum portals, and oral history and documentation.

"The Digital Museum initiative is one that HERITΛGE is very proud to be part of. The war in Ukraine has resulted in the destruction and displacement of many Ukrainian museums, especially in the east of the country. These museums, whose collections are lost or evacuated and stored for safety, struggle to survive. Their role of bringing people together around their shared history is essential now, when many Ukrainians are displaced and need support to maintain the connection with their identity and culture," said Maja Kominko, Director of HERITΛGE's International Projects.

The Digital Museum training program is the result of cooperation between HERITΛGE, New Museum ( an NGO that manages the Museum Crisis Center and is a partner of Lviv's Territory of Terror Memorial Museum), and the Shevchenkivskyi Hai Charitable Foundation (at the Klymentii Sheptytskyi Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life in Lviv). It is designed to develop the capacity of Ukrainian museums in digital storytelling and virtual exhibition projects in order to increase the online presence of Ukrainian culture. Participating professionals will develop their fundraising, partnership-building, and networking skills to   enable museums to expand their activities and attract more resources to preserve and promote Ukrainian culture.
