Dossiê museomix Circuito Liberdade - BRAZIL 2017

Hello everybody!

My name is Marcela França, from Belo Horizonte, the capital of the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil! I am part of the Museomix community and work as general coordinator of the Circuito Liberdade, a complex of 15 cultural spaces that are located near a historical square, Praça da Liberdade.

One of ours main objectives is the creation of a strong and collaborative network among all its spaces. All of them are housed in historic buildings, symbolizing a beautiful open-air collection.

Our idea is that museomixers work and create from a part of the public collections that is in the Circuito Liberdade and how it represents the history of the city of Belo Horizonte and the state of Minas Gerais. Museomix is ​​an opportunity for integration between the cultural spaces of the Circuito Liberdade, which is why our choices as a localization and collection are always based on the premise of strengthening networking.

Therefore, the marathon is planned to happen in a representative place for all other spaces, the building Rainha da Sucata, and the collection available will connect each one of them.

For us, it is fundamental to think about how all spaces will feel part of the process and the marathon. We are very excited to make Museomix happen, and we know that our proposal is ambitious and full of challenges. Museomix never happened in Brazil, and we don’t have anyone from the Museomix Minas Gerais community who has already participated before.

In addition, we have been working hard to translate and learn a methodology that is all in French. We are bravely moving forward! :slight_smile: We made the first Apéromix in December 2016 and 120 people were present! Since then the community has been forming (currently we are 47 people) and meeting, focused on the areas of communication, programming, production and logistics, mediation and content. We have also made strategic partnerships and received the support and interest of many people.

We would like to share with you the first version of our application dossier! Please read, comment, interact with us. We would love to hear from you!

At the end of May, we will deliver our final version of the application dossier.

Best regards!

Obrigada, tchau!

Marcela França

Hi Marcela,

Very nice to hear from you and Msx_BR community. I just had a look on your file et will read it afterwards, but it’s clear you obtained a very, very impressive achievement already ! You really targeted the goals we discussed together in Lezoux : 47 girls and guys working hard and together in the process, whaoouuh…

It seems that you don’t need any help anymore :wink: The only advices you could need now : be careful with the daylife points (feed the stakeholders, be aware about accomodation for all, get a good Internet network)… and be self-confident ! It WILL be a success !
You’re creating your way AND your community that way, that’s Museomix !

About some ideas or facts you mentionned in the file :
Did you contact @Justine ho tried to create such a multi-site project last year in Montreal (she unfortunately didn’t succeed to raise enough money to make it a reality but worked a lot on the idea) ?
You can also join @Clemence who became very experienced in organizing “Msx-like” 2-hours events (during Museomix or at any time in the year).

Best souvenirs to everyone !
Have a nice day,
Jean Pierre (Msx AuRA)
