ERC 2014 – Opening Reception


  • The opening of the #ERC2014 at Ateneum Art Museum delivered a smashing start to the conference –  we had moomins, a male screaming choir, speeches from the organisers and hosts, a brilliant attendance of registrars and collections professionals rounded up with lots of wine and nibbles.
  • The Finnish Male Screaming Choir kicked things off with an amazing surprise performance at the top of the grand entrance of the museum. They then went on to perform within the galleries surrounded by the works of artist and Moomins illustrator Tove Jansson. It really was a great, fun start, which also allowed us all to mingle – it was also great to see so many registrars in one place!!
