On 26 September 2019, an international conference “One personality – several museums. Quo vadis? ”, organised by the Association of Memorial Museums, was held at the Rainis and Aspazija Summer House.

The conference dealt with questions of the role of personality museums, goals and tasks in contemporary cultural processes. Democracy asks for an educated individual, who has an opinion of their own and who is capable of individual decisions. A great personality can promote the development of other personalities. A personality appreciated as a creative individual by a nation is a cultural value in itself for the said nation. Such personalities oftentimes have museums made in their name.

The conference was attended by experts and professionals of Latvian museums and guests from Switzerland, Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland.
