  • Description


    We are an Australian artist couple creating the a Museum in the beautiful Piedmont village called Conzano.

    Our aim is to enhance social connectedness and foster connections, which develop links within new and existing global community members. In this way it seeks to encourage personal understandings between new migrants, not so new migrants and members of mainstream communities internationally.

    It will have educational programs and the a studio residence for international creatives.

    This year we have re-roofed the 1750 building and plan to begin renovations for the studio in November this year and would love to have enthusiastic volunteers to be part of this "world" vision.

    Orhan Pamuk, the Nobel Prize-winning Turkish author, who founded the Museum of Innocence in Istanbul, was a keynote speaker at the 2016 International Council of Museums (ICOM) conference in Milan. He said that in the future we need "small and economical museums that address our humanity”.
    He argues that, “In museums we have History, but what we need is stories. In museums we have nations, but what we need is people. We had groups and factions in museums, but what we need is individuals. Concluding that, “We need are small and economical museums that address our humanity.”
