What is LilliputPlus:

Lilliput Plus is a project aimed at innovating practices for the involvement and active participation of families with children in European museums and cultural sites promoting historical, civic commitment and memory. The project main targets are museum operators who perform an educational role, and aims at developing skills and methodologies to enable them to promote participatory practices and approaches in museums for a greater and more effective involvement of families with children aged 0-10 years.

LILLIPUT PLUS is co-funded by the European Union through the Erasmus Plus program (Adult Education Key Action 2 Small scale strategic partnerships). The partners are the multidisciplinary network Lilliput, led by the Association We Love Moms – WLM (Italy) that aims at making museums as strategic spaces for the cultural and social growth of children and their families; and the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience –  Europe (ICSC-Europe) made up of 46 museums, historical sites and organizations dealing with the theme of memory distributed in 21 different countries and represented in this project by 3 museums selected by the ICSC Coalition itself: MUMA in Genoa, Museum Our Lord In the Attic in Amsterdam and the War Childhood Museums in Sarajevo.

 

 LILLIPUT PLUS includes a structured training course for museum staff and governance. This will make possible the implementation of the museums’ offer in terms of services, infrastructures, activities and cultural proposals for the targeted group, also through an analysis of the specific needs and expectations of this target.

The expected long-term results are not only an increase in the participation of the targeted group of families and children in museum activities, but also their active participation and full satisfaction in terms of accessibility, inclusion, learning and quality of the initiatives offered. In this way, the public will naturally become ambassadors of the museums they visit and in general of the promotion of family friendly cultural activities in museums.

The project lasts one year and envisages several initiatives, including:

1.

The study of best practices at national and international level

3.

The pilot of the Lilliput methodology in the 3 museums involved

2.

Capacity building of cultural operators

4.

At the end of the project, project achievements and other useful data and information will be presented in an international conference (September 2022), held in Genoa, that will also be an opportunity for networking as well as to discuss future intervention and initiatives
