Lorena Sancho Querol is researcher in the area of Social Museology at the Centre for Social Studies (CES), University of Coimbra, Portugal.
At her most recent project, Society in the Museum (SoMus), and together with the teams of four local museums in different European countries, she is defining four new models of participatory management for cultural institutions.
In parallel, and in order to exchange ideas and new experiences, Lorena is CES researcher in the Coordination team of P-2020 project “Creative Tourism Destination Development in Small Cities and Rural Areas” (CREATOUR) since 2016, and CES Co-coordinator of the H-2020 project European Colonial Heritage Modalities in Entangled Cities (ECHOES).
Lorena conceptualizes cultural participation in museums as “a set of cocreative and evolving sociocultural dynamics intertwining micro and macro-participation, according to place specificities and to the needs, values and dreams of people conforming local society” (in Revista Interdisciplinar de Gestão Social, v. 6, nº 2, p. 41-70).
