Training and Capacity Building

The implementation or transformation of public policies aimed at strengthening museums in the region necessarily involves the people who work in these institutions. Therefore, one of Ibermuseums’ most important contributions to the segment is to promote the training and capacity building of Ibero-American museum workers.

Ibermuseums seeks to expand its activities through the knowledge that reflects its lines of action, in addition to those identified in different studies on the sector carried out by the Training and Capacity Building and the IOM. The goal is to promote best practices in management, research, conservation, communication, mediation, engagement and other areas that help shape the institutional life of museums.

This effort makes it possible to carry out specific courses on priority subjects, focused on issues of general interest to museum professionals from all countries of the Ibero-American region and/or specific problems related to a particular group of countries. Also, this line of action fosters the mobility of technicians and professionals in the region through training grants, participation in training activities and the meetings in museums or similar institutions.

More than 300 technicians and professionals have benefited from Training and Capacity Building projects, attending Ibermuseums courses and workshops and through scholarships. As a result, more than eight hundred institutions have potentially benefited from the consequences of train-the-trainer actions undertaken by these participants.
