Mumbai International Airport to celebrate International Museum Day 2017

To commemorate the vast diversities of India's cultural industries, GVK MIAL’s Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport, the metropolitan’s integrated terminal that hosts India’s largest public art program – Jaya He, will organize a weeklong passenger engagement activities at the iconic Terminal 2, starting May 15th, to mark the World International Museum Day.
This is for the first time that such a unique initiative will be taken by any international airport within its premises.
Organized 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 significant 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 travelers 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 travelers transiting through the city.
