Reflexiones sobre la participación como co-creación en el museo

El fenómeno de la participación social, impulsado por el auge de las nuevas tecnologías, ha planteado un nuevo escenario y nuevos interrogantes para los profesionales y teóricos del museo. Para muchos de ellos, la participación se ha convertido en un pilar del nuevo paradigma del siglo XXI, en el que la co-creación desempeña un papel fundamental. Sin embargo, la terminología que rodea la participación en las artes se encuentra en un estado de cambio y tanto el concepto de participación como el de co-creación son conceptos ambiguos y son múltiples los usos e interpretaciones que se les otorgan. Este artículo se propone reflexionar sobre el binomio museo y co-creación a partir de una extensa revisión bibliográfica.

How to you pull people from different sectors together to build an unknown outcome in 3 days? Started with seeing tweets from France and then wanting to get involved in something I didn’t really know what it was. It is something you have to experience to appreciate. I went to MuseoMix in France 2012 and even though didn’t understand language, knew the framework was something that could really remix and shake up museums!

The key idea was allowing other sectors to have input. For our first year, it was a little complicated getting a community but I called in favors from friends and paid them with cake and smiles. I knew they would get something out of it. Up until our first day, there was confusion but with the framework that allows for growth with some guidance the community was able to achieve a level of re-thinking they did not think would be possible. Since then we have done another MuseomixUK and rebranded to Open Community Lab to branch out to health care and other sectors.

To stay relevant to changing communities, many arts organizations have been developing engagement programs — that is, programming designed to reach more and different people and involve them more actively in how art is made and experienced. While engagement efforts are often episodic or separate from an art organization’s core programming, in late 2013 a group of 10 arts nonprofits across California set out to make engagement central to their identities as part of the New California Arts Fund. To do this, they pursued transformations in their programmatic, organizational, and business models. This evaluation documents their achievements and challenges, and provides considerations for arts organizations and funders interested in reaching ethnically diverse and/or low-income communities.
