PEOPLE Make Museums
A little introduction
Museomix, this is an open community of innovation, culture, and technology enthusiasts who share the desire for a dynamic museum that is connected and interactive. Museomix, it is a gathering of mediators, tinkerers, designers, developers, graphic artists, communicators, artists, writers, scientists and other fans of culture, in the heart of a museum for a creative, intensive and festive 3-day marathon.
They combine the wealth of their ideas, points of view, and savoir-faire and work together in teams to design and construct innovative mediation installations that bring a whole new museum experience to life. Museomix is an international event! Every year in early November participants invest in several museums around the world at the same time. But Museomix is not just an event. Museomix is also a great community that exists year-round and operates thanks to the commitment of many volunteers.
Museomix, it is a group of multidisciplinary teams that invest in museums to create and develop new prototypes of cultural mediation. These participants combine the wealth of their ideas, points of view, and savoir-faire and work together in teams to design and construct innovative mediation installations that bring the museum to life and give it a buzz.

Museomix also collaborates with many partners: FabLabs, creative companies, universities, hackerspaces, etc. Thanks to these partners, museomixers have access to an extraordinarily innovative toolkit to remix their works, collections, and spaces of their home museum.

How does Museomix work?
Every year, Museomix looks for cultural institutions or museums that can host the event, because Museomix could not be done without these professional teams, we are motivated and invested in the search for new mediation models. Feel free to contact us for more information.
Museomix also happens thanks to many valuable partners who participate in each event’s success. If you want to help us and provide material support, we are always looking for partners (tech shops, FabLabs, carpentry, assistance in developing spaces, etc.) to solidify and build an environment conducive to Museomix.
Do you want to share your knowledge and expertise? Then feel free to join us at an upcoming aperomix or send us a quick message.
