The event highlights a specific theme that changes every year to promote cultural exchange and cooperation among peoples. This year's theme is Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion.
Due to the current situation with the coronavirus threat, the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum will celebrate International Museum Day online.
Thus, within the Virtual Museum Tour project, famous public figures will become our guides, take us to a virtual tour around the museum's permanent exhibition, and talk about carpets and other samples of decorative and applied arts in Azerbaijani, English, and Russian. More, for the first time in our museum practice, the tour will be accompanied by sign language translation consistent with the motto Museums for Equality: Diversity and Inclusion!
Furthermore, this day, the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum and the Russian Ethnographic Museum will organize the online conference and discuss ongoing work within the joint project Treasures of Azerbaijan in the Russian Ethnographic Museum Collection, both museums' virtual activity, and exchange their experience in this direction.
