The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

Preparing for International Museum Day, May 18th 2010
Museum visitors the world over will be celebrating International Museum Day 2010 on and around 18 May. This year's theme is social harmony.
To help you organize International Museum Day, ICOM has put together a communications kit for its committees and members. In addition to the resource pack of ideas for suggested activities, this year, for the first time, it also contains poster to print and to customize in your language, and media kit.
