Last Saturday the museum organized its very first info session for future volunteers.
AfricaMuseum is known as one of the world’s most beautiful and impressive museums devoted to Africa, so you can imagine their keen interest in being an active part of it! About 20 enthusiastic future volunteers enjoyed an informative afternoon that included a special visit to the construction site.
The museum is developing volunteer work opportunities so that members of the public can play an active part in the project. A whole range of possibilities will be available.
Even before the museum reopens, some volunteers can already lend a hand during specific activities, such as the return of the museum’s masterpieces or preparations of reopening festivities.
They can also help set up the exhibitions and the welcome pavilion by installing or moving museum pieces and fittings. And just by being ambassadors for the museum, our volunteers will already be making a great contribution to our efforts to develop these opportunities.
AfricaTube is also based on volunteer work. It has already been mentioned in previous blog posts. It is a specific project inviting young volunteers aged 16 to 26 to be part of this interactive and digital platform that selects videos from the internet to show a more contemporary Africa, and show its innovative, creative, and dynamic face.
