Participatory Engagement in Museums

I would like to invite you to brainstorm about Participatory Engagement in Museums. How can we define it? What are great examples of this type of engagement? How can museums expand their impact by engaging their audiences differently? I trust you to contribute with your creative ideas and personal experiences.

he Whitney Museum recently sponsored a public art project with artist Gary Simmons. To make the project, teens collected responses to the question, “What are you waiting for?” from their classmates and the larger community. The handwritten scraps of paper were then photographed, printed, and wheatpasted onto a wall, creating a layered, complex, and sometimes contradictory collection of voices and opinions. - OPENER FOR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!

He explores beauty born out of coincidence and beyond human imagination; his work echoes the beauty of nature with its ever-changing expression, giving the idea “that the design doesn’t even exist”.

Japanese design firm Nendo constructed a climbing wall using an eclectic mix of baroque picture frames, mirrors, deer heads, bird cages, and flower vases in Omotesando, an upscale shopping center in Tokyo. And she only went in for a bag of sugar !
