Data Society Research Seminar: Participatory engagement in museums
During this seminar, prof. Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt will reflect upon more than ten years of experiences on participatory engagement in the museums.
The seminar reflects upon the experiences of museum exhibition laboratory that was set up in Estonian National Museum in 2009 and which later has morphed into a Do-It-Yourself participatory exhibition hall. Starting from the idea that museums are institutions responsible for democracy and open dialogue, the seminar will look at some forms of participatory engagement possibilities.
The aim of the seminar is to take some abstract and theoretical ideals and discuss how these can be established in practice.
