A brand new partnership with the National Heritage Institute

The Mucem and the National Heritage Institute ‘Institut National du Patrimoine’ (Inp) have joined forces to create a training programme within the confines of the Mediterranean Institute of Heritage Crafts that is designed to facilitate professional encounters throughout the Mediterranean basin area.
These three-day sessions are aimed at all heritage professionals in the domains of conservation, restoration, site management and also outreach work. The training relates to a wide definition of heritage that is both tangible and intangible.
This training meets the requirements for Inp registration, and is payable.
The programme enjoys the support of the Circle of enterprises of the Friends of the Mucem, enabling in certain cases support to be provided for professionals from the Mediterranean basin area to take part in the training. Well over a dozen or so professionals have been able to join us in this way every year.

Customised training

The Mucem has, for 2016 and 2017, arranged specific training together with a longer duration course for five students of the first Masters in Museology set up in Morocco by the National Institute of Archaeological Sciences and Heritage. The initiative was set up in close partnership with the conservation services of the museums of Marseille, and was supported by the National Centre for the Rights of Man in Morocco.

Partnership with the Louvre School

The Mucem hosts the regional courses of the Louvre School l’Ecole du Louvre. These take place on Mondays at the Germaine Tillion Auditorium.
