Memory Walk – Maja Nenadović
The educational program Memory Walk builds upon the mission of Anne Frank House by supporting young people to remember their history, reflect on the way it is being presented through heritage and respond to possible misrepresentation and manipulation of history and memory. High school students from throughout Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia and Serbia created short film clips about monuments from these countries during several workshops organized in 2013 and 2015. This workshop will introduce the participants to the Memory Walk methodology, and share some of their experiences with its impact on students.
Digital communication strategies – Ines Bulajić
The workshop will be structured in the way to explain what is digital strategy, with emphasizing the importance of content. Museums have a lot of content which is to be present in new and innovative ways. Museums in our region often have good ideas, but lack of staff (IT, graphic design, PR), so a part of the workshop would also be presentation of free online tools which can be helpful in managing the content. Presentation of case studies, good practices and tips on how to use the experiences, bearing in mind limited resources. The importance of effective storytelling will be additionally explained, using the good practices, but also encouraging participants to tell us about their own positive stories.
