Museums are democratising, inclusive and polyphonic spaces for critical dialogue about the pasts and the futures. Acknowledging and addressing the conflicts and challenges of the present, they hold artefacts and specimens in trust for society, safeguard diverse memories for future generations and guarantee equal rights and equal access to heritage for all people. Museums are not for profit. They are participatory and transparent, and work in active partnership with and for diverse communities to collect, preserve, research, interpret, exhibit, and enhance understandings of the world, aiming to contribute to human dignity and social justice, global equality and planetary wellbeing.
I’m attending a writing class at the moment and am lacking a bit of time to be around here as much as I would like to but the first class was so much fun that I just had to book a second one. It is really time for some new input and a change of scenery!
Even if your blog is not political, chances are, you’ve said a thing or two about Trump or Corona or Megxit. Maybe you shared your mourning or mental health issues. What makes you pick your photos, recipes or stories? This is what makes me wonder, if our blogs are museums. Our posts are always influenced by the things that go on in our lives or the world. I find it a lot more interesting how people are dealing with this crazy year than watching statistics on the news and this makes our blogs strangely relevant in a bigger context. If you don’t blog for money, you have an authenticity that is nonpareil.
