Including Majorities. VI Seminar on Art and Social Inclusion

Dec 1 —— 2, 2016

What are majorities and how should we attend to their needs and interests? This was the main question that the sixth edition of the Seminar on Art and Social Inclusion had to answer. Eminently practical in approach and structured around working sessions, the programme focused on analysing and thinking about the role of museums as spaces that are sensitive to current social and cultural demands.

With this in mind, and in collaboration with Obra Social “la Caixa”, the seminar dealt with issues such as interdisciplinarity, innovation and multiculturalism, along with the need to come up with more efficient strategies to bring cultural institutions closer to the majority of the public. This event was aimed at professionals from the culture and museums sector, cultural and social administrators, development cooperation experts and social agents.
