Food for Thought: Making a Museum from Scratch

Posted by Amanda Gustin on June 6, 2012 in food for thought |

In case you haven’t seen this, Ed Rodley at Thinking about Museums has had a really, really fascinating, thoughtful, and thought-provoking series of discussions lately.

He’s playing out a thought experiment that starts with a basic premise: how would you create a museum from scratch? That is, how would you incorporate all of our current thinking about community, digital access, transparency, radical trust, etc., into a brand new institution? Is it possible to do things right from the start, or will we fall into the same traps?

Here are his posts so far:
