Gp3B : Événements historiques – Cultural Institute
A exposição Resistir é Preciso... é uma idealização do Instituto Vladimir Herzog e tem como objetivo contar a história da resistência à ditadura militar que se implantou no Brasil em 1964 e que permaneceu no poder até a eleição indireta de Tancredo Neves, em 1985.Nesse período, muitos trabalhadores, estudantes, intelectuais, artistas, religiosos e diversas outras pessoas de vários setores da sociedade civil lutaram pelo restabelecimento da democracia.Durante a luta, milhares de pessoas foram presas e torturadas, centenas foram mortas e muitas delas, até hoje, continuam desaparecidas. Para sobreviver, inúmeros brasileiros foram obrigados a se exilar. “Resistir é Preciso...” reuniu um expressivo conjunto de obras de artes que mostra a militância dos artistas clamando por democracia e denunciando os abusos e os crimes da ditadura.Nesses anos, nasceu também, uma imprensa de resistência que se expandiu no país, na clandestinidade e no exílio.

Gp5 : expérience de visite zoo & musée For most of us, a trip to the zoo, museum or an aquarium is a fun and interesting way to learn about animals, history, art and other cultural experiences first hand. Behind the scenes, however, these organizations must work hard to create the engaging, interactive experiences that today’s visitors want, and successfully market that experience to the public. This is especially true today, when these typically not-for-profit venues must compete with an expanding array of theme and amusement parks, live and digital entertainment events and sports attractions. To remain viable and vibrant, zoos and museums must continually fine-tune their vision and exhibits to grow visitor traffic and membership. They need to be creative with concessions, and optimize use of their meeting rooms and cafes.

Collecting institutions have enormous stacks of data about the artifacts and artworks in their stores. Several museums around the world have worked hard to make their data accessible by providing free access to datasets, applying Creative Commons licenses to digital content, or creating APIs (application programming interfaces) that allow programmers to build their own software on the museum's data. Last month, the Tate joined the party when they opened up their collection database to the world on GitHub, a website where programmers collaborate on projects. The Tate is providing metadata about artworks and artists in its collection--over 70,000 artworks in all. The data is in a computer language called .JSON that is commonly used for data sharing and processing.

"Museums have a long view in their DNA," said Ford Bell, president of the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), but faced with limited funding and staffing "it is possible to get bogged down in the day-to-day." Ideas for getting out of the bog are outlined in a new report from the AAM's Center for the Future of Museums, which encourages museums to learn tricks for increasing foot traffic from the likes Toms Shoes, Ben & Jerry's and websites that offer free access in exchange for personal data.

Facts Summary Timeline Westward Expansion summary: The story of the United States has always been one of westward expansion, beginning along the East Coast and continuing, often by leaps and bounds, until it reached the Pacific—what Theodore Roosevelt described as "the great leap Westward." The acquisition of Hawaii and Alaska, though not usually included in discussions of Americans expanding their nation westward, continued the practices established under the principle of Manifest Destiny. Even before the American colonies won their independence from Britain in the Revolutionary War, settlers were migrating westward into what are now the states of Kentucky and Tennessee, as well as parts of the Ohio Valley and the Deep South.
