Arts combinatòries (Lloc d'educació, exposició i recerca) | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

“Combined Arts” wishes to be a platform for collective work and for interrelation with the visitors, researchers and other collaborators of the Fundació, that will allow us to share, disseminate and actualise the vision of culture and contemporary art that the Fundació has held from 1990 to the present, as well as its programme and future projects. It also seeks to be a project of reference for the development of digital platforms for access to cultural contents through the processes of direct participation by the users.

Click! A Crowd-Curated Exhibition

“Click!” is a photography exhibition that invited Brooklyn Museum's visitors, the online community, and the general public to participate in the exhibition process. It begins with an open call—artists are asked to electronically submit a work of photography that responds to the exhibition’s theme, “Changing Faces of Brooklyn,” along with an artist statement. After the conclusion of the open call, an online forum opens for audience evaluation of all submissions; as in other juried exhibitions, all works will be anonymous and “Click!” culminates in an exhibition at the Museum, where the artworks are installed according to their relative ranking from the juried process.

The Wing: At Home in an Era of Global Participatory Culture | UpNext: The IMLS Blog

The Wing: At Home in an Era of Global Participatory Culture | UpNext: The IMLS Blog | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

I work every day at The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, which is centered on a community-directed exhibition development model. Community members are engaged to tell their stories to the public in a museum setting, and a high level of community ownership and stewardship results. Over the years our approach has sometimes pegged us as an outlier among museums, but we found our global people at this seminar.

Since the seminar, and inspired by the participatory era, The Wing experimented with our From Fields to Family exhibition on Asian Americans and food. We issued a call for food photographs from your home meals to be displayed via Flickr and continuing to expand the exhibit after it opened. http://www.flickr.com/photos/wingluke/sets/72157627841888312/

We recently opened the exhibition Inside/Out: APA Girls and Suicide, creating dialogue around a difficult topic and inspiring visitors with messages of survival and hope. The exhibit calls for short response videos to build the dialogue beyond the exhibit panels: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pFvD9UYpaDE

As a result of the participatory project "Brangulí was here. What about you?” the CCCB has created the exhibition “Barcelona: 2000-2011” that presents the way that modern-day photographers see the city and the subjects that Brangulí photographed. The participative project between the CCCB and Barcelona Photo bloggers wants to know how professional and amateur contemporary photographers see the city of Barcelona at the start of the 21st century. The exhibition presents the ten winning photos and a screening of the 324 finalist photos. All the pictures of the project are available online on this website and displayed in two multimedia points at the exhibition.

Turbinegeneration

Turbinegeneration | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

“Turbinegeneration” is a unique programme that brings together schools, galleries and artists from across the world. Schools and colleges can register to collaborate with an international partner to explore their cultures and exchange their artwork online. Schools may choose an international partner school. This is supported by a free downloadable project pack, with a range of starting points to initiate an ongoing dialogue between schools. Each year, the “turbinegeneration” project pack is based on ideas and themes represented in The Unilever Series installation. The project pack is informed by research with teachers and developed by practicing artists and Tate Learning. Activities can be easily adapted for different ages and abilities and can be integrated to meet learning objectives across the curriculum. By registering on the site, schools create a partnership blog where they share, compare and develop artwork together. The site makes it easy to upload photographs, video, audio and text. In fact any art-form may be recorded, uploaded and shared using these media.

Diritti al cubo

Diritti al cubo | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

This exhibition is a journey of exploration through the words of democracy that asks the public to participate by giving answers to the questions it asks. Rather than offering certainties, the exhibition aims to make visitors reflect on the problems, uncertainties, expectations and desires that the society in which we live creates in each one of us. I/YOU/WE make up the social corpus of a system in which the interests of the individual must coexist with those of others. So, after expressing his own opinion, the visitor can compare it with those of others and finally put himself in the shoes of the legislator: which rights should be supported and enforced in a changing society?

QRator

QRator | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

QRator is a collaborative project between the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities (UCLDH), UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA), and UCL Museums and Collections, to develop new kinds of content, co-curated by the public, museum curators, and academic researchers, to enhance museum interpretation, community engagement and establish new connections to museum exhibit content. QRator enables members of the public to type in their thoughts and interpretation of museum objects and click ‘send’. Their interpretation become part of the objects history and ultimately the display itself via the interactive label system to allow the display of comments and information directly next to the artefacts. The project is powered by Tales of Things technology developed at UCL’s Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, which has developed a method for cataloguing physical objects online which could make museums and galleries a more interactive experience. QRATOR takes the technology a step further bringing the opportunity to move the discussion of objects direct to the museum label and onto a digital collaborative interpretation label, users’ mobile phones, and online allowing the creation of a sustainable, world-leading model for two-way public interaction in museum spaces.

The “BibPhone” concept enables children to annotate physical material with digital recordings; children are able to speak into the books by placing the bibPhone over a RFID tag on the book. By using the “BibPhone” as listening device previous recordings are revealed to the user. A secret layer of information for children attached to selected books is also an imaginable scenario. Furthermore, the concept is not restrained to information materials but could also be used in relation with RFID tags added to specific elements in the physical environment, enabling new forms of play and exchange of information.

A History of the World

A History of the World | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

“A History of the World” involved schools, museums and audiences across the UK. The website features all the objects added to the project during 2010 both by museums and individuals. At the heart of the project was the BBC Radio 4 series A History of the World in 100 Objects. One hundred 15-minute programmes, each focusing on an object from the British Museum’s collection, written and narrated by Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum. The programmes told a history of two million years of humanity through the objects we have made, starting with the earliest object in the museum’s collection. Inspired by the Radio 4 series, museums teamed up with the BBC in their area and selected over 1,000 objects from their own collections reflecting world history from their perspective.
