Climate Museum UK
Project Category: Other
An emerging mobile museum creatively stirring responses to the climate emergency. We support organisations to explore climate change (and related issues) in ways that help their communities to learn, create and take positive action. In turn workers will be more able to continue engaging with climate change in ways that are relevant to their purpose and place.
Based in London with plans to travel beyond. Aiming to be a registered charity.
What we’re working on:
A pop-up museum: A selection of props, infographics, games, activities and artworks that can be installed differently to suit each host organisation. The pop-up is installed through a one-day workshop with staff and supporters, then, when ready, opened up to a target group or wider public. The participatory activities invite visitors to add their own responses, which are digitally captured in a story online. It is flexible enough to be installed in museums, libraries, schools, community and faith groups, visitor centres, businesses and empty shops.
Museums+Climate tour: As an alternative or extra to the pop-up museum we can work with organisations to create a tour script for their museum, heritage site or town. The tours add climate to the story, exploring relevant themes such as energy, industry, food, invention or protest, providing an option for a tour they can offer to their visitors.
Digital museum: We’re developing an expanding digital presence. We are gathering collections of climate music, art, design and information resources, using Pinterest. We are running social campaigns, and pointing to relevant resources and collections held by climate campaign groups and museums.
