Comments29/08/2016 #4 Tetyana Stadnyk#1 Thanks for reading and sharing it @Randy Keho. Yes, It was made specifically for those who can't visit it in person :) And I will have to ask you. Don't use "The" Ukraine, it’s simply ‘Ukraine’ and not ‘The Ukraine’. Anyone who talks like this just makes me cringe, not because it’s ungrammatical, but because it’s rude. ‘The Ukraine’ was a phrasal noun that Russians referred to as Ukraine during the Soviet Union. Ukraine just celebrated 25 years of independence on August 24th. If you don't understand what I mean, try to imagine me saying in "The America" would you like it? ;-) That's why I encourage you to read this article http://time.com/12597/the-ukraine-or-ukraine/ and share it, because it's very common mistake among English speakers, which pisses me off to the point I am not just stop talking to them, but I block them as soon as I see that mistake.29/08/2016 #1 Randy KehoI always find military museums to be extremely educational. If I'm traveling somewhere, I'll look ahead to see if there are any along my route or in the vicinity of my destination. I reside in the Great Midwest (United States) and I don't foresee any trips to the Ukraine in my future. So, I gladly accepted the invitation to view it in 3D from my office. We rarely get a glimpse into the world of our former Cold War adversaries. As a fleet manager, I worked closely with a contracted truck mechanic who was born, raised, and served in the military in the Ukraine before immigrating to the United States. I'll bet he'd be interested in checking this out, as well. I've shared this in the Museum Hive.

Comments19/07/2016 #2 Randy KehoI have a few more. I'll post them as time permits. @Joanna Hofman My failing eyesight makes continuing in the hobby just too frustrating. I gave it up nearly 10 years ago. I had the pleasure of being invited to the home of one of the masters, where he has his own museum. It's amazing what some people can do. He found out he had a daughter he didn't know about it. They met when she was in her 30s. He's in his seventies. Turns out, they both admired a particular house nearby. He built a scale model of the house for her from scratch.

- 28/03/2016IMPORTANT AND URGENT
To all ecomuseums and community museums in all countries in the world, and to all professionals who want to know more about ecomuseology
You have been already invited by Italian ecomuseums to an International Forum, to be held in Milan, on July 6-8 2016, during the ICOM General Conference.
Then you have been invited to a Call for Papers to be presented at the plenary session of the Forum on July 7, at the Politecnico di Milano. The abstracts are being received until April 15 and will be reviewed by a Jury of experts. .
Now begins the third phase of the project of Italian ecomuseums : nine ecomuseums have already expressed their wish to invite you to visit them "at home", during the days before and after the ICOM Conference. More could join them soon. Among them two guided regional tours offer to present the diversity of heritage and ecomuseums of their respective regions.
Go to , look at the list of visits and select the sites you want to visit. Then prepare your travel programme, through direct communication with the contacts named for each ecomuseum or guided tour. And make this opportunity known to your colleagues, friends and professional networks: we cannot know and contact all of them.
This is a unique chance to get acquainted with the world of Italian ecomuseums, but also to enlarge and share your practice and your conception of ecomuseology and community museology.ICOM visite « Ecomusei.euwww.ecomusei.eu

- 15/03/2016The ecomuseum is a process. The entire population should be involved in it. The community should be involved in every action, from inventory, pretextual-actions (exhibitions, etc.), to research, management and funding must have community representation and decisions should be made democratically. This is how self-management and social transformation will be achieved.Ecomuseo - Ecomuseum - Écomusée: Ecomuseum Featuresecomuseumspain.blogspot.co.uk

Williams"any picture that attracts hordes of people has long since died, a victim of its own renown, its aura dissipated, its meaning lost in heaps of platitudes and cant. Say a prayer for its soul and move on" Both agree and disagree with that statement; but that's the beauty and challenge of appreciating art. See in it, take from it what feeds you.
