Mumbai Airport celebrates International Museum Day

To commemorate the diversities of India’s cultural industries, Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport that hosts India’s largest public art programme – Jaya He, will organise weeklong passenger engagement activities at the Terminal 2, starting today, to mark the World International Museum Day. Organised annually on May 18 by the International Council of Museums (ICOM), this initiative is a collective effort by museum communities across the globe to raise awareness about the role that museums have played in the shaping and development of societies.
Drawing inspiration from this year’s theme of “Museums and contested Histories: Saying the unspeakable in Museums”, MIAL has planned a host of activities for travellers which will include workshops, tours, and folk/traditional musical performances. Through this initiative, the airport aims to apprise passengers about India’s unheard legacies, narratives, historical background and facilitate cultural exchanges amongst travellers transiting through the city.
