FOCUS is an interdisciplinary forum and sustainable communication and training platform for experts working in the museum and exhibitions sector. This event is intended for representatives of research and teaching institutions, decision-makers from museums, young colleagues and service providers in the museum and exhibition industry.

The first FOCUS event took place in March 2014 and was a huge success. Around 250 well-known names in national and international exhibition planning, media development, design, scenography and culture visited St. Paul’s Monastery for the topic “New media in museums and exhibitions”. In March 2015, the topic was “People . Making . Museums.”, in April 2016 it was “Exhibitions between technology and staging”, and in 2017 it was “Inclusion and accessibility in the museum”, each highly successful. This was followed by “Change management in museums” in 2018 and “Depot planning and collection management” in 2019. In 2021, the focus of the event was on “Cultural tourism, visitor management and marketing for museums”. In 2022, the topics “Security, energy efficiency and facility management for museums“ were discussed.

The venue is the impressive, 700-year-old former St. Paul’s Monastery in Brandenburg an der Havel, which has housed the State Archaeological Museum since 2008. With around 10,000 carefully selected exhibits, the permanent exhibition offers a fascinating glimpse into the 130,000-year cultural history of the state of Brandenburg.
