Call for papers and projects

The University of Namibia and Goethe-Institut Namibia are jointly organising Museum Conversations 2019 and are calling for researchers, practitioners and artists to hand in papers and project suggestions.
Museum Conversations were started in 2018 as a series of discussions about the post-colonial museum in Africa and raised conceptual questions about museum work in Africa. The future visions of museums were discussed in Kigali, Windhoek, Kinshasa, Ouagadougo, Dar es Salaam, Lagos and Accra.
From September 18th to 20th 2019, these efforts will be continued in a regional meeting in Windhoek, Namibia.
