Following the "Creative Museum" project = Making Museum, a new European project

The European project Creative Museum closed in August 2017 with the last dissemination event in Lyon (associated with the first Summer camp Museomix) and with the edition of the toolkits.
The project partners found that the project was missing last step to exploit the results of Creative Museum designed.

The Making Museum project is a continuation of Creative Museum. The training programs tested previously, will be renewed and analyzed, in order to impact more the structures and the territory.
In addition, the Making Museum project will ensure the dissemination of publications produced within the Creative Museum project through workshops, conferences and other activities.
Finally, the Making Museum meetings will provide an opportunity to share the lessons and experiences of partners in the evolution of their professional practices and will provide participants with tools and resources to integrate the process more widely into their daily work.

@juliettegiraudpro can you send me this informations on my professional e-mail box ?
Merci d’avance !

This is all very exciting.
Let me know if I can help.
Maybe I can run some of the workshops.
When’s the Dublin one?
Keep up the good work.

Great !
You welcome and can contribute in november (from 2th november 9pm, to 3th november, 5am) to the first meeting as a museomixer, or/and later as a maker in residence !
For information, we just received a message from Radiona, who coordonate the makers residency, they could’nt participate in Dublin. Maybe the next meeting in Trondheim, we might work more on the maker residency subject.
Tell me if you’re interested.

Hello Juliette,
Museomix Normandy is candidate to welcome and train professionals from European museums in 2018. Our museomix will not be english speaking, but not doubt we can manage a way of translating !

Do you have ever an idea of the museum remixed in 2018 ?
From Dublin for kick-off meeting of the Making Museum project.

Big one, big things to create !

Hi @juliettegiraudpro,

It’s a wonderful opportunity! Sorry for the late feedback, but Museomix activities killed & delighted us at the same time :slight_smile:

As for the Italian training session we’re speaking with Margherita, I know @ElenaBertelli should meet her next week :wink:

As for the residences: could we propose to our recent makers to be this “maker in residence”?
Do you have an email or text or whatever in order to send it to selected museomixers?

Thank you and keep in touch,

Dear Rosanna,
The maker have to come from one of the 5 countries concerned (France, Ilaly, Norway, Finland, Ireland)
I wait the next step of our project to know exactly when ? where ? it’ll happen and be able to share concret element with all the interco.
I write here all the news informations I have.
Elena join the work group about this training session.

Hi, We met with Juliette in the train from Lausanne to Genève after the last Museomix in Switzerland. As a designer /maker, I am interested to be part of this project for a residence. If you are still looking for someone, I would like to have more details about being a maker in residence for “creative museum”. Where ?when ? Is it paid ?

Let me know,
All the best :slight_smile:

Chers musées museomixés ou prochainement museomixés,
Chers relais des communautés museomix locales (et européennes)

j’espère que vous allez bien.
Voici des informations concernant le projet d’accueillir un maker en résidence dans un musée proposé dans le cadre du projet CREATIVE MUSEUM.
Les dates de la résidence ainsi que le sujet sont à définir par le musée lui même.
Le maker viendra de l’un des 5 pays partenaires du projet Making Museum: Italie, Croatie, GB, Irlande (France). La langue de travail est l’anglais.
Il s’agit de 14 jours de résidence dans un musée (budget for Maker-in-Residence €1475 this includes the flight of up to €275). Une convention de partenariat devra être rédigée entre le musée et l’association Museomix si vous vous engagez dans ce projet.

Si vous êtes un musée intéressé, merci de me renvoyer les informations ci-dessous par mail, le plus rapidement possible :

Institution name:

Contact person of institution:

Role of contact person:

**Website/Social Media/Project links: **

Residency Objectives/Project Plan (250 words) of host organisation:

Specific resources e.g. equipment, spaces, allocated staff, events & festivals etc. available for Maker-in-Residence in host/receiving organisations:

Proposed dates for Maker-in-Residence for host/receiving organisations:

A votre dispo pour en reparler par tel.

Amis Makers,
Amis Museomixers…
et Amis Européens,
Museomix vous invite à partir en résidence dans un musée européen (Trondheim, Dublin, Zagreb ? ) pendant 14 jours. (Frais de séjour et de déplacement pris en charge par Museomix).
C’est aussi une idée pour accompagner une communauté museomix ailleurs et contribuer au lien entre communautés de makers et communautés museomix… ou bien d’autres choses à imaginer.
Si l’idée vous tente, faites moi signe en mp en précisant :
**Name of maker **
**Email **
**Skills **
Maker’s experiences


@juliettegiraudpro tell me if I’m correctly understanding: this is to share with museums in which Museomix has already taken place or in 2018 museums in which for sure there will be Museomix?

As for Italy, the chosen museum will be the one chosen with Margherita or could be another for this activity?

Thanks in advance,

@juliettegiraudpro again to be sure: this is a call to be diffused through our Community communication channels? Publicly or only through mailing lists? Should it be addressed only to makers that have already experienced Museomix or to newbies too?

Thanks again,

yes, it’s addressed to makers who have already experienced Museomix, who are concerned by museomix development… through mailing lists might be fine.

@juliettegiraudpro thanks: is there a deadline?

… end of the week !

Damn! It’s too early I guess…

@juliettegiraudpro what if we say the 15th February as deadline?

And what’s the period of the residencies?
