Smash the Singular!

Finding new ways of working together — with communities, within our organisations, with interdisciplinary teams and across museums. How can we make this happen while diversifying access to and perspectives on museum’s digital collections? With the NEO Collections project three very different museums started by using the digital space to connect with “heavy users”, talk to them and learn from them, or start a conversation in an international network of “critical friends.” In our talk we’ll share our experiences of co-creating digital prototypes with different formats of digital residencies and fellowships and how this impacts how we transform our organisations.
