The Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography, a public cultural institution functioning under the authority of the Cluj County Council, invite you on Friday, February 28th 2020, at 9:00 a.m., to the start-up of the project 5 high schools 5 museums, at the “Avram Iancu” Theoretical High School in Cluj-Napoca.
Already a tradition, 5 high schools 5 museums is an educational project for high school students, which encourages the youth participation in cultural events. Until June 2020, students from 5 high schools in Cluj-Napoca will have the benefit of free visits at five museums in the city, being also challenged by an online general culture competition.
The project partners in Cluj-Napoca are: ECDL ROMANIA, the Cluj County Council, the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography, the School Inspectorate of the Cluj County, the National History Museum of Transylvania, the Art Museum of Cluj-Napoca, the Zoological Museum of Babeş-Bolyai University.
The opening event on Friday, February 28th, will be an interactive conference, which will bring in virtual contact the participants from Bucharest and Cluj, who will start this project together.
A second competition for students will also be launched within the conference. The youth is encouraged to contribute to an as active page as possible on the web site of a social network, in order that each high school be able to promote one of the partner museums, via the educational-cultural activities they will attend throughout this project. Thus, they will encourage as many colleagues, teachers and friends as possible to visit museums.
The start-up of the 13th edition of 5 high schools 5 museums will bring together the students and the teachers involved in the actual stage, as well as the representatives of the partner museums, who will reveal the topics of the guided tours for this year.
5 high schools 5 museums has set out to trigger a social epidemic of museum visiting among the youth, under the form of a competition. First launched in 2008, the project was held locally until last year, only in the capital, and it had a positive impact not only among students, but also among the teaching staff, and thus, the organizers and their partners have been encouraged to continue, but also to entend the initiative. Now, before the start-up of the 13th edition, 3 000 high school students from 60 high schools in Bucharest have already enjoyed the opportunities offered by this project, this edition adding other 500 students and other 10 high schools from Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca.
We look forward to welcoming you on Friday, February 28th 2020, at 9.00 a.m., in the festivities room of the “Avram Iancu” Theoretical High School (25, Onisifor Ghibu Street, Cluj-Napoca).
The event is organized and supported by ECDL ROMANIA, also with the support of all the involved partners.
