Best Practice Award

This prize was initially organized for these reasons :

  • Establish a common language among CECA members worldwide so that it is easier for them to share their experiences.
  • To promote the comparison of programs organized all over the world, so that CECA members can more easily integrate exogenous ideas into their own work.
  • Disseminate the programs presented by CECA members throughout the museum community in such a way that they can inspire all professionals in the field.

This year 2022, the top five programs will again receive this award, based on the criteria presented below. The winners will be offered the opportunity to participate in the annual CECA Conference in 2022 (Prague, Czech Republic, August 20-28, 2022)). Their registration fees and a contribution of 400.00 euros for their accommodation will be covered by CECA. (Please note that transport costs will not be covered). As in previous editions, these five programs will be published. But there will also be other high-quality programs presented that can be included in “Best Practice 10, A tool to improve museum education internationally”.
