Museun Communicator (Mu.Com.) is a training project focused on the development of a professional figure, strategic within museums and cultural associations that manage museums: the Museum CommunicatorThis person is responsible for an important sector of success of a museum through the communication of museum activities to the audience. The training project is aimed at two different types of people: adults working in museums who need to develop specific skills in the field of communication, and young people entering the labour market who need a solid basic training to meet the current challenges of a peculiar market such as the “cultural enterprise”. The project proposes a course based on an innovative methodology that also makes use of new communication and information technologies, with ad hoc teaching tools developed by a network of prestigious educational and museum institutions from four different countries (Italy, Bulgaria, United Kingdom and Romania).
The course enables participants to acquire high-level and internationally recognised standard competences, in collaboration with the Project partnership, by training-upgrading professionals able to elaborate and implement effective strategies and techniques to make communication with the general public, the mass media and networks of territorial actors productive.
In 2012, inside the project the MIC arranged the competition:
A POSTER FOR MIC. The contribution of the Italian graphic designers to communicate the International Museum of Ceramics in Faenza.
The invitation-only competition was reserved for all Aiap members and a selected number of professional graphic designers, for the design of an image celebrating the MIC Faenza ‘Unesco Monument’.
The aim of the competition was to create an image, in poster format, to represent the unique character and international role of the MIC as regards ancient and modern ceramics and to communicate the UNESCO recognition it recently obtained as “Monument Witness to a Culture of Peace – Expression of Ceramic Art in the World”.
The winning image will be the symbol used indefinitely in the city of Faenza and beyond to communicate the values of the MIC and celebrate the Unesco award.
A qualified jury appointed by the MIC in collaboration with AIAP, made up of representatives of Aiap, MIC, Club Unesco of Forlì, ISIA of Faenza and an expert figure, selected 20 works;
among them, four reached the final stage and, among them the winner was selected.
