First Museum Management Workshop in Tehran


News Category: Cultural

 19 November 2005



The First Museum Management Workshop is opening in Tehran today, jointly by the Iranian National Museum and the British Council.

The workshop is going to be inaugurated by Dr. Michael Wilson, First Secretary Education and Director of the British Council in Tehran. The opening ceremony of this international workshop will take place in the presence of Mr. Esfandiar Rahim Mashaee, Vice President of the Islamic Republic of Iran and Head of the Iranian Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization, and the British Ambassador of Tehran, Sir Richard Dalton.

Managers and other museum staff from across Iran, as well as participants from Afghanistan and Pakistan will attend this educational event. Speakers from the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museums in London, the National Museum and Niavaran Palace in Tehran, along with others from institutions in both the UK and Iran will present their success stories in this workshop.
Case studies and discussions to explore issues such as interpretation, museums and the community, museums and education, and the role of museums in the 21st century are among the topics that will be covered in the workshop. Included in the case studies will be the collaboration between the British Museum and the National Museum of Iran, to create the hugely successful “Forgotten Empire” exhibition currently on the show in London, which includes many generous loans from the National Museum of Iran. Another case study will look at the very successful “Children’s day” hosted by Niavaran Palace in Tehran.

Curators, directors and managers from museums around Iran and participants from Afghanistan and Pakistan will attend this workshop. The British Council and the National Museum of Iran hope to arrange a similar workshop in a neighboring country next year to extend collaboration between museum staff throughout the region. Held at the National Museum of Iran, the workshop will end on Wednesday 23 November.
