Action Topics

Our Action Topics can help you think through migration in relation to various aspects of museum practice.

Interaction

One way of engaging visitors actively with the theme of migration is to build interactive elements into displays.

Action Topics

Displays

Human migrations can form a difficult and sensitive topic. How can we use display techniques also to deal with tensions and difficult stories?

Action Topics

Collections

The collections in your museum probably contain things that have travelled around the world, perhaps collected by people who did the same.

Action Topics

Audiences

Audiences can help you think about ways to encourage audience understanding and empathy with migration issues.

Action Topics

Objects

Artefacts migrate with humans and tell different stories of their travels. They can be bearers of meaning, objects of attachment, comfort, despair or utility that connect to places, identities and experiences.

Action Topics

Mission

Having a clear definition of ‘mission’ will help you focus the strategic direction of your museum and its relationship to migration.

Action Topics

Co-Production

Co-production is a way of avoiding the liabilities of the museum speaking for others, through a process of speaking with communities.
