The Memorial to the Victims of Communism and to the ResistanceProposal for the Council of Members meeting of the Platform of European Memory and Conscience, The Hague, November 2013
We propose the creation of a presentation guide to the Platform of European Memory and Conscience and its member institutions and organisations.
We believe that such a guide would be of use in helping us to gain a better understanding of our partners and also in promoting the Platform.
Fuller information about the projects of each member institution – publications, conferences, travelling exhibitions – would result in better co-operation between us, as well as exchanges of ideas. Likewise, it would allow the organisation of joint projects, for example the hosting of partners’ travelling exhibitions and collaboration on the projects we submit to European programmes such as Europe For Citizens. Action 4: Active Memory of Europe
Such a guide might include the following information about each organisation:
· The year it was founded
· A short presentation
· Whether it is an ONG or state institution
· Collections (in the case of archives)
· Number of visitors (in the case of museums)
· Travelling exhibitions
· Projects in the foregoing year
· Summer schools
· Other useful information
We would accept the rôle of co-ordinating the collection of all this information and of publishing the guide, a copy of which would be sent to each partner in electronic format. Depending on the funds available from the Platform, a large number of copies could also be printed for distribution to the wider public.
