In this fresh batch of interviews, we feature award-winning projects from Finland, Japan, United States, Australia, Belgium and Austria. In these talks with the members of TBIH2020 Jury you will learn about the oldest museum in Finland praised for its networking skills and tight connections with the regional community, about a museum dedicated to bringing peace and happens to children by fostering picture book culture, about the commemoration of the life and legacy of one of the most important civil rights icons of all times Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and about a museum that breaks down boundaries to what is foreign with knowledge of our common human existence. In the IMAGINES section you will find out about the 25.000 km long travel that the VERONA project team took to bring us open online access to Jan Van Eyck masterpieces, and about what happens when you produce an exhibition by asking people across the state to share their portraits on Instagram and via an in-gallery photo booth. 

So enjoy the interviews and stay tuned for fresh releases coming up regularly on YouTube, with one new IMAGINES and two new core programme interviews weekly!
