The Creative Museum project is an Erasmus+ funded project – it sees museums as dynamic learning environments providing opportunities for staff and visitors to explore and repurpose collections in new and creative ways.
Based on the outcomes of the project to-date, this practical half-day conference looks at some of the recommended ingredients for building a ‘creative museum’, whether you work in a museum or not.
The event is co-chaired by Don Undeen, University of Georgetown (Washington DC) and former Senior Digital Manager, Met MediaLab (New York) and Jo-Anne Sunderland Bowe, Director, Heritec Limited and Project Co-cordindator, The Creative Museum project. Also present are a variety of speakers from Culture 24, Lighthouse, Museomix, Radiona, and the Chester Beatty Library (Dublin).

This session will be fully-participative – be prepared to come with lots of questions and an open-mind.
