Staff and team members of the cartoon museums did develop together a dream for 2025. This word cloud is representing the ideas of their big dreams
Connecting through an object 2012/09/06
At the start of a conference it is always difficult to get contact. So we asked all participants to bring an object that was relevant to them and their museum. In little groups we shared the stories behind the objects.
Galit Gaon of the Israeli Cartoon Museum talked f.e. about the logo of her museum, a clear blue thinking bubble. A symbol for the museum as a place of dialogue. If you are a visitor or a cartoonist, you have to express yourself. If you enter the museum as a visitor you have to start the debate about the cartoon.
Tatyana Tsankova did bring a photo of the Gabrovo staff. Most of them all ready work there for several years and are part of the museum. Even when they are retired they still come to the museum to help in events. They are really committed to the House of Humour.
Vicdan Ozer brought the pipes, tobaccos and lighter from lately deceased Attila Ozer. They are the symbol for Atilla’s life and work which you can see in the Atilla Ozer Cartoon House.
These are just some examples of the great stories that cartoon museum directors and staff members shared with each other. It was a good start for the next days.
At the 4th cartoon museum conference we will present the ‘Guide of Cartoon and Caricature Museums around the world’.
The aim of the guide is to inform the general public about the cartoon and caricature museums. The guide will be published in English and can be downloaded for free at our and other websites.
It is a practicial informative guide with information about the accesibility of the museums, what you can see, the facilities, contact information and other interesting places to visit in the neighborhoud.
We hope that the guide will inspire tourists and cartoon lovers to visit one of the cartoon museums on a holiday.
All cartoon and caricature museums can be published in the guide for free. Please sent us a mail to get some more information (firstname.lastname@example.org)
