Bringing maker culture to cultural organisations

A session at VALA2014

Thursday 6th February, 2014

8:45am to 9:55am (EST)

Should museums, libraries and archives be places for looking at old stuff other people have made, or could they also be places where new creations are inspired and made? If making - writing, designing, building - is the deepest level of engagement with heritage and culture, how can memory institutions avoid the comforting but deadly trap of broadcasting at the public and instead create spaces for curating, creating or conversing with them?
