National September 11 Memorial & Museum: Memorial Exhibition Archive

National September 11 Memorial & Museum: Memorial Exhibition Archive | Designing for participation within heritage | Scoop.it

The memorial exhibition will commemorate the lives of those who perished on September 11, 2001, and February 26, 1993, and will provide visitors with the opportunity to learn about the men, women, and children who died. The Museum plans call for visitors to enter the exhibition along a corridor in which portrait photographs of the nearly 3,000 victims form a Wall of Faces, intended to communicate the scale of human loss.

The memorial exhibition will rely on material contributed by the audience. Contributions will become part of the Museum's permanent collection and will actively support our exhibition and educational efforts in perpetuity.

"Choose the Piece" is one of seven pilot projects selected in Emilia Romagna within the “MAP for ID” project, targeting to 60 students of immigrant background (young people and adults) attending Modena’s Centre for Adult Education and Training (CTP). Following an overview of the city’s key historical events each participant was invited to “adopt” one of the 30 objects. Their choice was guided by CTP teachers and the museum staff by playing on personal tastes, memories, specific interests and affinities with objects connected with the different countries of origin. Students were also asked to write down the reasons for their choice along with a short biography, which led to further analysis and activity under the guidance of the museum staff. In receiving a certificate finalising the symbolic adoption of an object, each participant committed him or herself to preserve it and to spread its knowledge. Adoptions were visually documented through the pictures taken by a professional photographer, who portrayed each participant with his or her chosen piece. The images, accompanied by a text providing information on the object and a short biography of the participant, were published in a “multicultural diary” for 2010.

Dynamic, interactive multimedia displays guide our visitors through the journey of European integration and the impact this has on our everyday lives. In particular the “Role Play Game” addressed to secondary school groups, let the participants to step into the shoes of a Member of the European Parliament and to take a fast-track course on how Europe's democratically elected body works. Students need to negotiate with fellow pupils to build the future you want for Europe, as in imaginary political groups, they will discuss issues such as water solidarity and micro-chipping and will need to find a compromise in order to legislate.
