Memory Lab – Spring - Workshop

“Wake up Europe, Sarajevo Calling” Connecting Local History and International Perspectives

Sarajevo, 26-29 June 2017

Organised by the History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina, in cooperation with Südosteuropa-Gesellschaft

The History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is currently rethinking the content, structure and design of its permanent exhibition “Besieged Sarajevo” which was inaugurated in 2003 and which is dealing with the life and survival of the citizens of Sarajevo during the 1992-1995-siege. In this context, the History Museum is organizing, in cooperation with the Südosteuropa-Gesellschaft (Munich), a two-days-workshop in Sarajevo with the title Wake up Europe, Sarajevo Calling” - Connecting Local History and International Perspectives. The workshop will bring together the team of the History Museum of BiH and curators, historians and educators from the Western Balkans and the European Union, with the aim to work on the current exhibition and to elaborate concrete recommendations for its further development. By connecting experts from the local, regional and international level, with their respective knowhow, experiences and perspectives, the workshop will also tackle the question how the history and the memories of the siege of Sarajevo can be embedded in the European/international context.

The History Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina is inviting interested curators, historians or educators who have experience in museum work to apply to participate at this workshop, by sending a motivation letter and a CV until 28th May 2017 to histmuz@bih.net.ba

The workshop is an activity organized in the framework of “Memory Lab – Trans- European Exchange Platform on History and Remembrance”.

Accommodation and meals will be covered during the program.
