Manila Museums Summit 2021

Manila Museums Summit 2021
Histories and Other Stories: Figuring Out the Times in Museums
26 to 28 May, Wednesday to Friday
Presented by AGMAM, in partnership with PAAFI, and with the support of NCCA and MFPI.

On the year that we mark the quintcentennial of Magellan’s landing in the Philippines, we focus our attention on history and heritage. As the stage on which we encounter the past through material culture, museums, heritage houses and archives remain powerful producers of narrative while being potent spaces to unpack complex histories and platforms for critical conversations. Social unrest, the climate crisis and the global pandemic have accelerated changes in many cultural institutions. Heightened public interest in untold stories, natural heritage and local histories, have allowed museums to present more experimental exhibitions and programs resulting from trans-disciplinary collaborations.

The Manila Museums Summit 2021 will be hosted via Zoom with livestreaming on Facebook.
