SSaNeProMM will provide museum staff and trainees in the process of shaping their vocational educational background with the tools necessary to achieve intercultural behavior and communication. The project will thus contribute to preparing today's museum mediators, anchored in the reality of the society, able to adapt to the multiple challenges that can be brought by the museum visitors, irrespective of their national origin, sex, profession, religion etc.
Trainers and trainees will have the opportunity of reflecting on the importance of the own culture in a globalizing world, of communicating it correctly, understanding and respecting the expectation of the other. Culture is an identity mark but it has the power to connect people, to bring people together, to share information and knowledge, and attenuate cultural and societal divide. It attempts to raise awareness among museum professionals as for the significance of reflecting our own cultural identities and act as a catalyst, as a vehicle for mutual understanding, mediating the museum to the eyes and mind of the visitors.
In this framework, the project will provide vocational training for prospective future museum specialists - the museum mediators - and for the museum staff, in order to exchange knowledge, experiences, to learn how to adapt to the others' expectations.
