On 6 November the Director of the Ethnographic Museum in Zagreb, Dr Goranka Horjan, welcomed 26 museum professionals for a two-week RE-ORG workshop in the National Museum’s storage areas. The participants, 21 from Croatian museums and 5 from Slovenian museums, are reorganizing 24 storage rooms of the National Museum over ten working days.
After agreeing on a common objective, the participants identified three main steps: creating a temporary localization system, freeing the storage corridors and furniture from non-collection objects, and regrouping collections dispersed in various rooms or on different floors. To achieve their goals, the participants are being followed by a teaching team involving RE-ORG mentors from Serbia, Slovenia and Croatia.
This activity follows the July launch of the Croatian National RE-ORG Project, a three-day “Training of Trainers” workshop given to five Croatian professionals. On this occasion, Gaël de Guichen gave a public lecture on the RE-ORG programme attended by 76 colleagues including representatives from the Ministry of Culture and the City of Zagreb.
RE-ORG Croatia is organized by ICCROM in collaboration with ICOM SEE – International Council of Museums South East Europe Alliance, the City of Zagreb, and the Croatian Ministry of Culture. It is being held at the Ethnographic Museum in Zagreb.
