Guidelines on creative making for adults in museums

The guidelines, developed by the CREMA project, are designed to support museums that wish to stimulate visitors’ creativity with the museum collections as starting point.

The guidelines are divided into five chapters that provide different interpretations of creative making practices and approaches for adults in museums. The chapters covers Museum collections and creative making, Audience development and engagement, Guidelines for entrepreneurship and innovation, Guidelines for intergenerational learning and Accessibility and makerspace = MakeAbility.

The aim of the project CREMA – Creative Making for Lifelong is to turn museums into places of exchange and learning, through the implementation of laboratory activities – derived from traditional craftsmanship or digital and in open dialogue with collections.

Several of NEMO’s members were part of CREMA, which was funded by the Erasmus+ programme. The project partners include Regional Museum of Skane (Sweden) as project leader, Finnish Museum Association (Finland), Hungarian Open Air Museum (Hungary), Creative Museum (Latvia), History & Art Copenhagen (Denmark), Radiona Zagreb Makerspace (Croatia) and BAM! Strategie Culturali (Italy).
