  1. What a fantastic initiative – and a welcome post! I was sad to see that our Museum here in Sri Lanka is not participating – I’ve made a note of the link and the manifesto and will at some stage write a letter to the museum – and the government – suggesting it’s time for our cultural institutions to play their part in the development of the country – it’s not just weapons and military victories that build nations.

    • It is unfortunate that you won’t be able to participate in this event. Communication is a central theme/mission of the day. Your actions will encourage the institution to consider new ways that they can contribute to the development of the country.
