This new theme will enable us to discuss the "participatory" and "contributory" aspects of the exhibition. In this way, and on the basis of several concrete examples, the speakers will discuss the point of asking members of the public to help design exhibitions, or of getting them to contribute to exhibitions.

From 5.30 pm onwards, the day will end with a tour of the "Archéo" exhibition: Don’t just scratch the surface!" presented at Musée Saint-Raymond. This exhibition is the result of a meeting between its two co-producers, Musée Saint-Raymond and Science Animation, during the first Museology seminar.
Registrations will be processed by order of arrival and within the limit of the number of places available. A waiting list will be drawn up if necessary.



Overview of the 1st edition (2014) of Toulouse's Museology Seminar

On the 23 June 2014, the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC) in the Midi-Pyrénées, Toulouse's Natural History Museum, Science Animation Midi-Pyrénées and the Cité de l'Espace jointly organized the 1st edition of a Museology seminar, which will be held on a yearly basis in the future.

The subject of this first meeting was: "Producing exhibitions: what is the formula?"

This is about creating an event devoted to exchanges between all professionals, those who work for the museum directly as well as service providers, to share experiences, pool productions, compare approaches, take know-how to its full potential, discuss issues… such were the objectives aimed at for this 1st edition. And some 200 professionals came to the Museum to actively and cheerfully contribute to the success of this seminar.
