The Creative Museum is a three-year project funded by Erasmus+. It ran from 2014 and comes to a close this month. It aimed to explore and inform the connections between our cultural organisations and their communities by capitalising on the emergence of new and democratising digital technologies.
We have had the great pleasure of taking part in their events over the past three years. It was great to find museum community so open and willing to meet the makers on their terms especially the Chester Beatty Library staff. Events have ranged from talks, workshops and conferences. It has not been just a one way street, we have had museum staff come to Science Hack Day Dublin and jump right in. Tog has hosted events for the project such as Projection Mapping and we even had out members visit other project partners for workshops.
The Creative Museum project has proceeded a number of great tool kits and we are incredibly proud to see some of our events be the inspiration for a number of them. You can view them all on their website. http://creative-museum.net/toolkits/
