    imagesI’m Project Coordinator for Museomix UK, the only global Museomix happening in the UK and the only one that’s in English (4 locations in France, 1 in Quebec and us).   The concept is not easy to explain as it’s an experience, not an event (although I tend to use both words).
     
    MuseomixUK will take place in Ironbridge (Shropshire, West Midlands) – the idea is it’s home of the Industrial Revolution and we’re trying to take things into the next revolution.  I also wanted a location outside London, Birmingham, Manchester to prove that any museum could use maker communities to push things to a different level.  
     
    The concept is this:  
     
    3 days for different communities to come together to create:
    – An open museum with a place for everyone
    – A living lab museum that evolves with its users
    – a networked museum in touch with its communities 
     
    Basically, we use the museum as a sandbox for people to create/remix a museum the way THEY want to do it.
