Museums for peace are important cultural institutions in telling the history of peacemaking as well as working to build and cultivate peace and justice for the present and future. Museums for peace have not only been exhibiting the historical accounts and telling stories of the prevention, stopping, ending, and healing from warfare and violent conflicts of the past. They have been engaging audiences, young and old, in reflecting, dialoguing, envisioning, and collaboratively working toward cultures of peace, nonviolence, human rights, decolonization, and both social and planetary justice for the present and the future.
The 11th International Conference of Museums for Peace will revolve around the role of museums as defenders of human rights and educators for a sustainable society. The Conference theme Museums As Peacekeepers for the Future connects the historical legacies of peacebuilding with current museum efforts in peacebuilding for the present and future. The Conference theme includes three sub-themes:
(1) Bringing history to life
(2) Education for peacebuilding
(3) Peacebuilding for the future
