Minecraft: A Mine of Opportunities to Engage with Audiences Across the Globe
Minecraft is the best-selling video game of all time, with, as of 2021, over 238 million copies sold and nearly 140 million monthly active users. In this session, we’ll look at early success stories and ambitious projects, such as those from the Tate Modern, the Museum of London, and FAMSF’s Teotihuacan and Legion of Honor Minecraft builds, and examine the challenges and successes of these projects. What does it take to keep these projects alive, relevant, and usable, and how can museums use them to engage visitors, reach a more diverse audience, and nurture virtual communities?
