Museum Next is coming to town this April 2016. This conference will provide our Creative Museum project the chance to showcase how museums and makers co-create in the design and delivery of creative programmes for audiences and visitors alike. See Museum Next’s list of speakers. The Creative Museum project is on the panel and will offer a dynamic overview of current innovative museum/Maker practice with local Makers (TOG), Science Gallery Dublin, Maker Electronics Ireland, Makematic (Derry, Northern Ireland) and the Festival of Curiosity.
What I really like about Museum Next is their vision: “We bring together the disrupters and the change-makers, focusing on those who are transforming museums through action rather than theory.”
This pretty much reflects what the Creative Museum is all about, i.e. we disrupt, ponder, explore, make connections, experiment, prototype and engage museums with audiences and Makers and share our discoveries.
Here is a snapshot of what the Creative Museum is all about
