Today is International Museum Day (IMD), which represents a unique moment for the international museum community. The objective of IMD is to raise awareness about the fact that, ôMuseums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.ö This year the theme is ôMuseums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusionö. With this theme, IMD 2020 aims at becoming a rallying point to both celebrate the diversity of perspectives that make up the communities and personnel of museums, and champion tools for identifying and overcoming bias in what they display and the stories they tell. Because of Covid19 the theme is celebrated through technology this year instead of having events in the museums.

Bygg­asafn Skagfir­inga has many collectors items from different and diverse people. To honor the International Museum Day we are collaborating with HÚra­sskjalasafn Skagfir­inga in bringing forth and show pictures of people and items that once belonged to them. Those are immigrants which either moved to or from Skagafj÷r­ur and enriched their new communities. Also interesting and strong people who took the challenges that life threw their way and persisted or even thrived.

The pictures are on the museums Facebook-page, here
