Playable Museum Award
Re-create the future museum

The museum of the future is in the hands of those who can imagine it, design and execute it. The Museo Marino Marini of Florence calls together creatives and dreamers from all over the world, giving life to an open and accessible collective platform. The open call is a place where outside-of-the-box ideas come together to create a “playable” museum – a place of action and interaction between people, the collections and their spaces. The challenge is to transform the museums into places of cultural production, multipurpose spaces where developers, makers, artists, storytellers, and designers work to blend the past and future, remixing technology and the humanities to create new models. A museum thus becomes a hub of innovation, a primary destination for innovators and dreamers from around the world and an active protagonist in designing the future. The chosen project will be awarded a grant of 10.000 euro with support and mentorship to implement the project.

The call is open from January 15th with a deadline for submissions of March 31st, 2018.

A commission of international experts from prestigious institutions will evaluate the submissions and select the winner.

The Playable Museum Award, coordinated by engagement scientist, Fabio Viola, has been conceived to bring innovative solutions that transform the museum experience.

The Playable Museum Award is presented in partnership with the Associazione Culturale TuoMuseo and with support from the Fondazione Cassa Risparmio Firenze and PCube.
