UNESCO PROPOSES RESILIART MOVEMENT FOR MUSEUMS GLOBALLY


Museums have always been a source of information, even during the emergency. Most of them have managed to adopt new ways to come through the pandemic and have started producing online content to remain a platform of knowledge and discovery. In view of this, UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) proposed the ResiliArt movement. The movement is responsible for performing virtual high-level discussions between professionals from all around the world. The movement aims to collect a fund for the cultural society amid Covid-19. Along with this, it promotes the digital transformation of museum resources. Concluding that online content production has to be the top priority right now to improve financial requirements. UNESCO warned that almost 13% of museums globally may never reopen. Nearly 85,000 institutes which are 90% of the whole industry have been shut for a considerably long time due to the coronavirus outbreak. To highlight the impact of Covid-19 on museums and institutions, state members and museum professionals conducted a study to find out the effect of the shutdown. Also to know about the new developments in the sector to keep up with the crisis and deal with the aftermath. UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay said, “Museums play a fundamental role in the resilience of societies. We must help them cope with this crisis and keep them in touch with their audiences.” He pointed out that museums cannot survive on their own and they need the support of public and private sectors. He advised that emergency relief funds and protective policies should come in play. The International Council of Museums (ICOM) pointed out that the study highlighted the loss of revenue in the museums as they are deprived of visitors, therefore; haven’t been able to provide for the maintenance. Since 2012, museums around the globe have increased by about 60% along with professional fields related to museums. This proves how important they’ve been in the past few years to enhance national cultural policies.
