Thinking Stories with MET Rishikul
19 April , 2022 @ 12:00 am - 6 April , 2023 @ 11:30 pm
Six children from grades 7 and 8 have been mentored to curate an exhibition as part of this Think Museum project. The children have created a world of make-believe by using fictional connections between museum objects of their choosing and a virtual exhibition has been designed to present their curation.
Think Museum Project
The Think Museums Project is an extension of the Citi-CSMVS Museums on Wheels outreach initiative. It takes the idea of outreach a step further by enabling students to create and host museum-like exhibitions for learning and knowledge sharing. Through this initiative students have interacted with the CSMVS team to come up with their own exhibition ideas and to create their exhibition narrative. Curating a physical exhibition amidst the pandemic was difficult, hence, with the use of 3D images of objects an online exhibition is presented. The Think Museum Project offers a platform for students to interact with museum curators and educators in creating their own exhibitions.
