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.

Museu de Arte Moderna de São Paulo dedicate this book to the institution’s educational department to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the venue. Since the department was created two decades ago, it has innovated in its pedagogical activities for exhibitions and expanded its audience welcomed by the museum, in addition to having extended the accessibility initiatives to the very routine of its employees. 

This publication was published in August 2018.

This report of findings and recommendations is part of a bigger study delivered to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago by Slover Linnet's researchers in November 2014. We want to share it here because it's interesting to see the way they studied the museum's visitors behavior to have an understanding of the impact of new technologies to engage with people. The study payed special attention to the different ways people engaged with the institution using new technologies offered by the museum. This report encapsulates the key findings of that research.
