THE EMEE WORKSHOPS
Apart from the five EMEE Toolkits, the Exemplary COP-Units and the establishment of a widespread EMEE network, the seven EMEE workshops occupy a key role in ensuring sustainability, utilization and exploitation of the project’s ideas and its outcomes. In general, the workshops can be seen as a contribution to the training, both vocationally and on-the-job, of experts that work within the museum field but also for experts on the mediation of history like history teachers.
The first five of the EMEE workshops are closely related to the five Toolkits. They offer participants an opportunity to actively and cooperatively work in groups to become familiar with the ideas and the concept of the Change of Perspective and, most importantly, to relate them to their own role and the museum in question. Thus, the workshops are designed to intensify the interconnection between theory and requirements in a practical context.
In addition, two other workshops were developed: Workshop 6, entitled ‘Change of Perspective by Involvement of New Audiences and Artists’, focuses on artistic conveyance and intervention in museums and thus complements the EMEE concept perfectly. Workshops 7, ‘Scenography – the Potential to Provoke a Change of Perspective’, however, emphasizes once again the important role of scenography.

The units are structured in a way that they build up one to another, and cover all areas which are important for the presentation of an object and the story. Due to the flexible structure of the units even single unit-modules can be used autonomously – because of its uniformed structure it is easy to find the right module for your needs. Even a mixed workshop, with modules from different workshop units, can be prepared with the offered material.
Every workshop unit consists of a package with the Guide for the moderator and Guide for the participants, the theoretical presentations, work material and worksheets – everything is ready to use. On top of that, the toolkits are also available if the moderator wants to read more about the topic.
