What did we do?

For Bradford’s National Museum, we co-planned and co-facilitated a workshop with researchers and museum practitioners from the UK, who were exploring how the National Science and Media Museum might become “locally-rooted and more open, engaged and collaborative.” We curated a participant list made up of Chicago placemakers and museum interrupters and co-led a workshop at the Stony Island Arts Bank. This convening was a key part of the UK team’s Action Research, and the Chicago dialogue became part of their final report.
