Αthens Museums and Cultural Institutions Network

Since 2011, the Museum is a member of the Athens Museums and Cultural Organisations Network. 

This initiative is based on three trajectories:

  • the creation of a common ground for communication,
  • the exchange of expertise and the co-operation between members in addressing specialised problems and
  • organising join events and shared plans.

The Network’s aims are:

  • to strengthen partcipants’ voices,
  • to elaborate multifaceted schemes and,
  • to approach and involve larger audience groups in cultural agendas.

It is an efficient ‘instrument’ serving educational and cultural ends by deploying contemporary strategies. 40 museums and cultural institutions are already participating in it.

The Athens University History Museum has participated in all common events and has co-ordinated the following events:

- "Our own Athens" (2014)

- "Athens: Neighbourhoods and Museums" (2012)
