From the 24th to 27th of October in 2015, there was organized a CECA BEST PRACTICE Workshop in Yerevan.
CECA Board member, co-author (with Prof. Colette Dufresne-Tassé) of the CECA Best Practice Tool Prof. Marie-Clarté O'Neill was invited to run the workshop. 20 participants from Yerevan and 6 regions of Armenia were gathered to get study the CECA BPT. For this occasion the last version of BPT was translated from French into Armenian.
The training was organized with the initiative of the CECA board member, Armenian national coordinator Ani Avagyan and ICOM Armenia president Marine Haroyan. It was supported by the Ministry of Culture of RA and the DVV international.
This workshop was the second stage in our programme to foster the promotion of museums education and the BPT; the first was organized in 2010, then the experts Prof. Emma Nardi and Marie-Clarté O'Neill focused more on the planning and design of the hands-on education programs and this time it was focused more on evaluation.
The sessions were at the National Gallery of Armenia and Aram Khachatourian house-museum.
