THE CREATIVE MUSEUM
In collaboration with a range of local partners, museums professionals and MuseumNext participants, the Creative Museum Project and the Chester Beatty Library will stage a high-paced, interactive and fun event about creativity and maker culture in museums.
In a relaxed, open environment, participants will be treated to a curated and highly interactive programme of lightning talks, fast workshops, and social mingling.
Contributors to the programme include:
Jo Ann Sunderland Bowe – Heritec
Jasper Visser – Inspired by Coffee
Jenny Siung – Chester Beatty Library
Ian Brunswick – Science Gallery
The topic: creativity, makers, and museums
Museums are often viewed as dead spaces. Yet museums contain incredible collections and inspire creativity, learning, and curiosity. How can museums tap into the creativity of their communities, maker culture and – ultimately – their own creativity, to face their various challenges and be better institutions? The event will present various perspectives on these questions, showcase best practices and invite participants to explore their own creativity.
