Student projects in the MuseumFutures lab
Most students participate in the lab through graduation projects. Generally, there are hardly any or no ready-made graduation opportunities available. If projects are available they will be communicated via the Facebook groups of the Faculty or the Master programs, as well as via the graduation-opportunities database of the Faculty.
Most of the graduation projects come about by students asking the lab director for opportunities within the lab. The general procedure then is that in a meeting the interests of the students are discussed. Based on that, museums that may possibly match those interests are approached to discuss opportunities for a graduation project and to then together formulate a design brief.
In spring semesters, various projects run in parallel in the lab and all students meet weekly to discuss their projects with each other, and to inspire and help each other out.
In fall semesters the number of graduation projects generally is very limited and projects deal with specific research questions that are studied in the lab. However, also in such projects a design component is always included.
If you are interested in doing a project in the lab, feel free to get in touch with the lab director.
