Our aim is to make the Museum a space where a wide range of voices are brought into the discussion and debate on what is happening within the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, the cultural scene and day-to-day life.
The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum asks a central question: How does humanitarian action concern us all, here and now? We respond to this question by teaming up with artists, cultural partners and researchers to analyse humanitarian action – its values, its various dimensions and its current state.
That is why we have chosen “Gender & Diversity” as our first-ever annual theme, which will guide our programming in the 2021–2022 cycle. Alongside numerous partners from various cultural horizons, we will explore issues related to that theme and imagine together what a feminist, inclusive and concerned museum should look like.
In that spirit, we are the first museum in Switzerland to earn the Swiss LGBTI-Label for employers. In recognizing the diversity of human identity, we reaffirm our role as a citizen forum that is open to all communities and audiences. We strive for inclusion and engagement in all that we do.
