The Visegrad conference for museum staff organized by the Pan Tadeusz Museum of the Ossolinski National Institute is to offer a possibility to exchange experiences and inspirations from the work with unobvious guests of a museum/art gallery – babies age up to three and their parents.
The goal of the meeting is a joint analysis of cultural offers available for the kids and their parents in each country and a debate how in this context to remove barriers and mutual distrust, which are in heads of both sides: a visitor and a museum worker.
During three conference days, WRO turns up several times in the program having many years of experience in the field of art mediation, including work with the youngest viewer and his relatives:
