The Social Museology, coming from the New Museology, aims at the democratization of the museum spaces, transforming the ways of thinking and making museums, changing and expanding the participations, decolonizing the museology and bringing the public domain stories and cultural traits Eclipsed by history. Based on this and other assumptions, this project aims to understand theoretically and empirically the Museum of the Settler as a community museum in the perspective of social museology. To achieve this objective, we intend to conduct a bibliographic research on new museology, social museology, community museums and collaborative processes. In addition, it prospects the understanding of the role of the Museum of the Settler, a pioneering project in the municipality of Rosana/SP, for its community and, finally, aims to provide theoretical and practical subsidies to the community so that it is the self-management of its patrimony cultural and promoter of the Museum of the Settler.
