This year’s Museum Education Seminar (MES) will be held over the course of five summer days in Lithuania’s beautiful capital, July 17-21, 2016. The seminar is generously hosted by Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum. 

The theme of the 2016 MES is politics of memory, and it will explore how politics of memory have shaped and continue to influence our museums and our educational activities. Participants will be able to visit a number of cultural and historical sites in and around Vilnius, explore several museums, and engage in educational workshops on topics ranging from working with theatre to using religious objects as educational resources.

The seminar is sponsored by the David Berg Foundation, NY.
