Even in this time of the new normal, the #NationalMuseumPH remains in service to the public through its offering of different educational programs/activities from its central office and regional museums nationwide. This year, as the NMP participates in the celebration of the International Museum Day, the Museum Services Division invites the public to its Seminar on Museum Practices program with the theme “Building Resilience Towards NMP’s Collections And Heritage Management: Exhibition, Curation, Preservation & Digitization”.

The Seminar on Museum Practices is a regular program of NMP that was conceptualized to uphold transparency on the museum’s various programs and efforts in achieving its goals.  It intends to create venue for curators, researchers, conservators, and other museum workers to report to the public their recent and ongoing programs and projects participation to various local and international trainings and conferences in various fields of museum work. These include research, conservation, exhibition, museum management, and public programs.

The seminar is a half-day (3 – hour) series of lectures that will feature NMP staff from the central and regional museums. Ms. Honey P. Beso of the NMP Western Visayas Regional Museum, and Ms. Malot Ingel of NMP Ilocos Regional Museum Complex will present about their three-week CollAsia training course on “Planning New Exhibitions: Conservation, Communication, Community” that was held at the Lao National Museum in Vientiane, Laos.   There will also be a presentation on the “Challenges and Opportunities in Conveying Underwater Cultural Heritage During the Pandemic” that will be discussed by Mr. Nero Austero from the Maritime and Underwater Cultural Heritage Division.
