Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) runs a multinational online museum www.museumwnf.org giving access to curatorially accurate information about artefacts or monuments provided by our Partner Museums. Currently we are working with the Austrian National Library, with Kunstkamera St Petersburg, Birzeit Museum Ramallah (among others) and are looking for help for the copy-editing of the database entries of these new Partners. Copy-editing includes a linguistic revision (where necessary also rephrasing) and harmonization with our editorial guidelines. The name of the copy-editor is published on each entry. Timing is flexible but we do request a pre-established work schedule that would be discussed at the beginning of each job.
MWNF is a non profit organization and the majority of our team is composed by volunteers.
We look forward to hearing from you and to welcome you to our team!

Mission Statement

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) builds bridges through knowledge and understanding. MWNF has 20 years of experience in "rewriting history" beyond narrow nationalist agendas and promoting a new, inclusive vision of history that highlights exchanges and cooperation between cultures in areas as diverse as archaeology, art and culture, economy and social life. Against the backdrop of contemporary global challenges and conflicts, MWNF projects demonstrate the far-reaching potential of cultural heritage in building intercultural bridges in the name of peace.

Description

Museum With No Frontiers (MWNF) was founded in 1994. Since the beginning, the idea was to overcome any kind of conventional 'boarder' and to create an exhibition space where well-known and unknown, small and large, secure and insecure, rich and poor could not only coexist but would complement each other, generating mutual benefit for all concerned.

The MWNF program is built around two main activities: the MWNF Virtual Museum including different thematic sections and the MWNF travel guides, focusing on little known aspects of cultural heritage.

MWNF is an independent non-profit organization, relying mainly on volunteer resources. The legal seat is established in Vienna, Austria.

The network set up by MWNF includes public and private Partners from all around the world.
