MuseumFutures lab vision
01 Jun 2016
The focus in the MuseumFutures lab is on designing museum experiences that matter to people and can lead to sustained dialogic engagement.
Central theme around the projects in the MuseumFutureslab is sustained dialogic engagement: (two-way) conversations as a way of visitor participation and creative engagement in which visitors engage in dialogues around a museum’s collections, or even broader, around topics such as the meaning of cultural heritage or the impact of new technologies on society.
A crucial precondition for creating sustained dialogic engagement with visitors is that experiences designed to facilitate this engagement ‘matter’ to the targeted visitor, the experiences should be perceived as relevant experiences.
We see relevance as a process that develops from anticipating that a museum maybe relevant, through repeated realizations of relevance to seeing relevance as a given.
In developing museum experiences we search for opportunities through a museum’s connections to the outside world and through the use of novel technologies.
