Digital museum

Screenshot 2018-06-13 11.51.09Climate Museum UK will be a real museum.

It may ultimately have a single venue, but it’s not a very climate-friendly thing to create a building, so the idea is to create a core display. The ‘de luxe’ version of this display could be purchased by any organisation for their own venue, adding to and adapting it. The mobile version will be hire-able for a temporary display or event. It might pop up in conferences or empty shops.

So, what is the digital museum version?

  • As the real display content is developed, some resources will be downloadable to print and replicate.
  • As partners adapt the display, and more stories or ideas are generated through participatory activities, some elements may form a growing online collection of shareable content.
  • As collections are acquired, such as books, posters or games, they will be reviewed or illustrated, with links to find out more. (If you want to donate something, get in touch to describe your offer. Only small/portable items.)

And below, more digital content to explore:

Here are three ongoing digital projects under the umbrella of Climate Museum UK:

Everyday Ecocide – like Everyday Sexism but calling out erasure & denial of other species, climate change or geophysics. Join, follow, use #everydayecocide

Beuysterous – creative actions for trees, and the inspirations of artists that work with trees and forests. (Forests are vital in the climate story.)

Possible Culture – tools and workshop resources for cultural organisations to be future-facing and sustainable.

And, here is a Pinterest-based collection of thousands of photos, infographics and inspirations. (If you’d like to be a pinner to any of these boards please connect and let me know your Pinterest ID and interest in a board)
