We will run an online workshop with a group of representatives from the ‘Museo Legislativo’ or Legislative Museum in Mexico City, in which we will introduce them to the concepts, materials, activities, and purposes of ‘A Museum for Me’ physical and virtual workshops and craft kits.

We have developed bespoke materials and have been using these in workshops in the UK and Colombia before and during lockdown, to work with marginalised communities (e.g. victims and exiles of armed conflict) on themes of historical memory and representation; following the success of our work with the ‘Museo Nacional de Colombia’ or National Museum of Colombia we have been asked to showcase this work to the Mexican museum, so that they can adopt the materials developed by our project, and adapt the workshops to suit their own local context.

Workshop led by Prof. Claire Taylor & Dr. Lucia Brandi
