How does MuSEA work?
|Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam have a common history and are geopolitically linked through migration and minority groups living on both sides of country borders. The cooperation between these three countries is the core of the MuSEA program. Every year a number of workshops and trainings are held, on issues such as audience development, gender and equality, IT and communication and conservation. MuSEA also offers English Language training and a scholarship program.
The cooperating institutions are of various character. Some are museums with focus on archaeology and ethnography, while other institutions work with contemporary issues and political development. The Mekong river is the common point of departure, as a historical and emotional symbol of a shared cultural heritage.
In order to make the progress of the program visible to a larger audience, a travelling exhibition is planned. This exhibition is both an end and a means to the program: each activity within MuSEA generates knowledge and skills that are necessary to build the exhibition, and the countries continuously work to develop theme and content. The title “Stories of the Mekong – Challenges and Dreams” gathers archaeology, ethnography, history and contemporary voices.
