Pop-Up Museum = Short-term exhibition that facilitates conversations and social bridging
Here’s the definition from the Pop-Up Museum Blog
- a short-term institution existing in a temporary space.
- a way to catalyze conversations among diverse people, mediated by their objects.
I really care about creating experiences in museums that facilitate social bridging – people connecting with other people who aren’t like them. I want to create safe environments where people can grapple with their own perspectives, celebrate their communities, and learn more about one another and the things we all cherish.
