WFFM

Dear friends,

I am delighted to join Elias Sacal our Vice President for North America and our Mexican Friends in inviting you to come to Mexico this coming June for the 2015 Council and General Assembly meetings.

Our hosts have prepared for us an excellent program giving us a taste of the wonders of the United States of Mexico and Mexico City. The meetings will be of great importance for the future of our World Federation of Museums and the program will be a wonderful opportunity to renew past friendships and establish new ones with friends and colleagues from around the world.

This will be my last Council meeting as President and I will be handing “the baton” to the new President to be elected there along with a new Executive Committee. We are also very hopeful that a meaningful group of International Young Friends will be joining us so Mexico 2015 promises to be an important milestone in the WFFM adventure.

I very much hope you will join my wife and I this June in Mexico.

With warm personal regards and best wishes for 2015,

Danny

Dear friends,

The Mexican Federation of Friends of Museums (FEMAM) has the enormous pleasure to welcome our distinguished guests to our beautiful Mexico City. We are confident that your visit will be a productive one, but most importantly, we will make sure that you feel at home and that you enjoy all the wonderful things this great city has to offer.

The members of FEMAM have carefully planned an exciting program that will surely enrich your mind and spirit as you encounter the great hospitality that defines our Mexican citizens.

We’ve carefully designed an itinerary that will allow you to explore some of the most significant museums within the Metropolitan Area. This has not been an easy task since Mexico City has one the most extensive number of museums in the world: 151, according to the National Council for Culture and Arts (CONACULTA).

In addition to our fabulous museums, Mexico is surrounded by beautiful plazas, public parks, archaeological sites, magical neighborhoods, theaters and endless cultural institutions. Its stunning architecture brings together the traditional and the modern styles in a very harmonious way.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and strengthening the World Federation of Friends of Museums!

Bienvenidos!

Elías Sacal

Encuentro de los Jóvenes Amigos de la WFFM 

Con motivo de la celebración del Consejo y la Asamblea General de la WFFM, el Grupo de Jóvenes Amigos invita a todos sus delegados a un simposio del 8 al 14 de junio de 2015 en México D.F. Su objetivo es conocerse y aprender de los diferentes perfiles de Jóvenes Amigos que existen en todo el mundo. 

Durante los talleres y conferencias, hablaremos sobre la mediación entre el Arte y la Historia y una audiencia joven, y debatiremos sobre resultados previos. Además, analizaremos formas de promover eventos de aproximación al Arte. 

Por último, habrá charlas formales e informales sobre las diferentes posibilidades de cooperación entre nuestras asociaciones. Para poder estructurar los procedimientos después del simposio, es necesario distribuir las responsabilidades en nuestra Joven Federación. 

Por favor, ten en cuenta que tu participación en el Encuentro de los Jóvenes Amigos no incluye participar en el programa de acompañantes ni en la reunión del Consejo. Nosotros tendremos nuestro propio programa personalizado. Os invitamos a que le echéis un vistazo:http://www.museumsfriends.com/en/node/700 

Para cubrir el coste del transporte de todos los participantes, habrá que pagar una cuota de USD $ 50. Los costes de la habitación y pensión no están incluidos. Todas las actividades pueden variar. Registrarse es fácil, simplemente envía un correo electrónico a youngfriendsmeeting@gmail.com y nosotros te enviaremos el formulario de inscripción. ¡Esperamos verte!
