I forrige innlegg nevnte jeg Nina Simons spennende blogg Museum 2.0. Simon er utrolig engasjert og idérik, med spennende visjoner for hva et godt museum er og gjør. Som for eksempel å få fremmede til å snakke sammen.
Simon: One of the things I’m completely obsessed with is designing exhibits and programs that invite strangers to talk with each other. I believe that the world is fundamentally a better place when people see strangers as potential collaborators and not as scary things to be avoided. We have so few public spaces that encourage people from different walks of life to positively engage with each other. In my ideal museum, every sign and exhibit and program is set up such that people naturally feel comfortable interacting with strangers—and are rewarded for doing so.
