The Lobkowicz Collections |
Lobkowicz Events Management
One of the main priorities of Lobkowicz Collections o.p.s. is to forge bonds between The Lobkowicz Collections, individuals and scholars interested in history and the arts. The principle way in which we seek to cultivate these relationships is through the organization of seminars, internships, research opportunities and student-focused educational programs.
Recent seminar participants have learned about the transfer of The Lobkowicz Archives to its new permanent home at Roudnice and Nelahozeves Castles; interns have assisted in the creation of exhibits and welcomed guests to Lobkowicz museums as Visitor Services team members; researchers have studied frescoes at Roudnice Castle and investigated the most precious objects of the The Lobkowicz Library; and students from the International School of Prague have discovered the treasures of the Lobkowicz Collections as participants in a specially arranged Curator for a Day program.
It is the hope of Lobkowicz Collections o.p.s. that the experiences offered through its programs will not only enrich the lives of participants, but also further advance knowledge of The Lobkowicz Collections in the world.
