Review of Educational Programs 2018-2019

16 – 19 May 2019

A four-day celebration within the framework of the International Museum Day and the European Night of Museums took place in the Milos Mining Museum (MMM) on 16–19 May 2019. The only Museum on the Cycladic islands to hold activities inspired by the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations (2030 Agenda) under the auspices of ICOM (International Council of Museums), the Milos Mining Museum organized the following programs under the general title “ΜΕΤΑΛΛΑμπαδεύοντας” [Imparting knowledge through metals]:

  • Educational Program titled “Πλάθω Φως” [Creating Light] with the participation of more than 130 primary school pupils
  • Informative sessions for families about the additional educational materials of the Museum with the participation of 50 families and educators
  • Creative guessing game for families
  • Embracing the Museum with candles
  • Sleepover in the Museum for 30 children and adults
  • Start of the annual project titled: “Family Camera Focusing on Milos”

The photo competition for families, with the title “Family Camera Focusing on Milos”, has already started. Each family chose a file, and the “adoption” process began! For one year, every three months, every family will receive a letter and a literary text. The project for each family is to photograph the space they have “adopted” in every season of the year. Photographs must have a title and the name of the photographer. In parallel, if they want, families can gather oral testimonies about the space they have chosen and submit them along with their visual material. Production will start after the collection of material from every season of the year is completed. In particular, the best photographs to be selected from every space will be printed as postcards, packaged in batches by each space in each season and sold at the museum shop of the ΜΜΜ for charity. A cause to be selected by vote by the families would be ideal.

If you haven’t signed up yet, you can visit the Museum and get your letter.
