The future of museums, archives & libraries

The UN Live museum “flips the script”. Normally Cultural heritage organisations start with their collections, their treasures and push them out, to the public. Participatory design and immersive exhibitions exist for a long time, but nevertheless, the UN Live Museum’s content strategy radically starts with the stories and experiences of people, including their socio-historic context. This approach ties in with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and in many ways with Bruno Latour’s “Où atterir?”.

Here’s Michael Edson presenting the UN Live Museum (1h), the first 5 minutes is an  introduction in Swedish!
