The Lab.s will take place in every partner institution and will put to the test the projects topics and convey the European re-interpretation of local museum objects in a trans-regional way as well as the concepts of social arena and bridging-the-gap to the museum visitors.

Subsequent to the meeting in Ljubljana, the award ceremony of the EMEE Young Scenographers Contest will take place in Graz and will represent the public event of the Fourth General Meeting. The contest with the motto “One Object – Many Visions – EuroVisions” is an international, interdisciplinary design competition and part of the research project EMEE. Young designers and scenographers were called to create ideas and develop design concepts to make the EMEE concepts experienceable. The entries represent new transcultural approaches to present regional objects with a European dimension via contemporary, content-consistent exhibition design, and new formats of presentation.

The public international award ceremony will take place within the framework of the Designmonat Graz on May 7th 2015, in cooperation with the Museum im Palais and the FH JOANNEUM. Four projects will be solemnly awarded the EMEE Young Scenographers Award by the organizers of the contest, and the winners will present their projects via keynote speeches to the public.
