Disrupting the museum with the Detour Guides
Design for insects with Esmée, dance through an expo with Giovanni or find yourself DJ-ing about architecture with Nathalie: at Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam (the national museum for design, architecture and digital culture) the guided tours have turned into detours. The Detour Guides are a team of diverse creatives, who are given carte blanche. This not only results in creativity driven experiences for the audiences, but also in an infiltration of the institute itself. Turning the museum into a more inclusive, impactful and adventurous place. Join us in this talk for a sneak peak of the detour experience.
