RESEARCH, COMMUNICATION AND EDUCATION
As part of its participatory research programme, the MCCB has been developing a set of actions aiming to research, interpret, communicate, and educate, using our municipal heritage as a vehicle through which to do so.
Community collaboration plan
A participatory research programme on Coal Mines
This work involved a diverse group of people with a particular interest in operations that strongly impacted the regional economy in the first half of the 20th century. Spurred on by their interest, this group set about collecting documentary and photographic records, souvenirs and pieces. The investigation resulted in the second medium-term exhibition at the MCCB opening in June 2015.
Museum/School Observatory - “MUSEUM HEROES”
This project, which is run in partnership with the MINOM (International Movement for a New Museology) Education Centre, comprises an experimental observation and research centre that aims to study and evaluate the performance of collaboration and partnership programmes between museums and schools. The “Museum Heroes” project is run throughout the academic year and involves the Batalha School Group, Town Hall and the MCCB. Aiming to bring together year 3 students, teachers, and specialists in museology to create a dynamism between the Museum, school and community, the project aims to promote heritage among the community’s youngest members. The main aim of the Observatory is to find and share formulas to ensure that young people connect with museums and their cultural values in their early years so that they can grow into knowledgeable adults that work to protect their heritage and use culture as a tool for social development.
