The museum's so-called "Memorandum of Technical Cooperation for the Enhancement of Collections" comes from a Franco-German fund created in 2018, which also includes Angola, especially the museum of anthropology, for actions to enhance the cultural heritage.
According to the National Director of Museums, Ziva Domingos, besides the implementation of a website for "better dissemination, communication and marketing", whose process "is in progress", several actions have already been carried out within the framework of the partnership formalized this Tuesday.
"We have already developed some actions related to research with the elaboration of pedagogical sheets for a better presentation of the museum to the public, there were also conferences related to anthropology and museology to strengthen the scientific component of the museum", he said.
Training sessions for staff on cultural mediation were also held, with the person responsible believing that the memorandum will "better position" the museum in the network of museums in Angola and other institutions for better service.
The national director of the Museums, assigned to the Ministry of Culture, spoke to journalists at the headquarters of the National Museum of Anthropology in Luanda at the end of the signing of the memorandum.
The representative of the Goethe Institut, a German institution, the director of the French Alliance of Luanda and the general director of the museum were the signatories of the document.
The National Museum of Anthropology, a structure erected in the era of the Portuguese colonial government, summarizes Angola's main ethnic groups, with a "rich collection" that comes from the east and north of the country, also covering other regions of the country.
The institution has been open to the public since 13 November 1976.
