In echoing with the approaching International Museum Day, themed The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine, FIHRM-AP held its first Online Meeting for Members on May 12th afternoon.
Since the official launch of FIHRM-AP in August 2019, unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been hard for international members to interact face to face. However, FIHRM-AP still seeks to know and connect with all members.
In this online meeting, we were pleased to meet participants from Taiwan and the ASIA-PACIFIC region. We were honored to have Queen Victoria Museum & Art Gallery (Australia), Jeju 4．3 Peace Foundation (Korea), Munir Human Rights Museum (Indonesia), and National Human Rights Museum (Taiwan) to present their individual Human rights works, responses under the pandemic, and anticipations for collaborations among FIHRM-AP members in the future. Taiwanese members also actively interacted and provided feedbacks online.
As a network for museums in the Asia-Pacific region that work on human rights issues, FIHRM-AP will continue to serve as the platform that promotes collaboration with international human rights organizations and museums. FIHRM-AP hopes to become the hub that connects museums, memorials, and human rights organizations in different countries in the Asia-Pacific region. FIHRM-AP will continue to work tirelessly in the promotion of human rights.
