The Hive Co- creation

A lot of people visit museums, some do so to learn something new while others just want a nice day out. Whatever their motivations are, they’re all expecting a certain experience. However, this experience is not always completely fullfil . On the other hand, museum professionals are challenged to make exhibitions that fit the needs of their visitors and try to give them the best experience possible. They often do this without actually communicating with them, which makes their job even more challenging sometimes. With the collaboration of CREATE-IT and No More Mondays we created The Hive, a toolkit that facilitates co-creation workshops for the creation of new exhibitions between museum professionals and visitors.

This toolkit consists of a set of tools, which museum professionals need to set up their first co-creation, such as instructions, activity cards, a game board and a website. The Hive will help museum professionals to get engaged with their community and improve museum experiences.
