MUCEM

"Destination MUCEM" : A free bus service to improve the museum’s access for people living in remote areas.

The project

Destination Mucem is a new mobility project for remote areas: every Sunday, a free bus service is offered to drive people far from the city center to the museum. This service enables new audiences to create a special link with the museum. During the trip, a personalised and fun mediation is offered in order to prepare the visit in a friendly atmosphere. On arrival at the museum, the public is given a free ticket. The bus will serve 4 different routes, and its different stops will be prepared by a large communication campaign with local actors.

MUCEM

The Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations (MUCEM) is conceived as a cultural city in the heart of Marseille (France). It represents the cultural, social, scientific and political proliferation of the Mediterranean world, offers major artistic, historical and thematic exhibitions and numerous events for the widest possible audience.

A jury of professional artists selects the winners. The creations are showcased during evening events at the museum or in digital ceremonies due to the COVID-19 situation. More than 5,000 reinterpretations have already been proposed.

"National Gallery: Jan van Huysum Visits…" : Exhibition of a painting from the National Gallery in unusual and very unexpected non-museum venues across the UK

The project

National Gallery: Jan Van Huysum Visits… is the sequel to the hugely successful 2019 project Artemisia Visits… For Artemisia Visits… Artemisia Gentileschi’s Self Portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria (about 1615-17) toured to five unusual and unexpected non-museum venues across the UK – a doctors’ surgery, a girls’ school, a women’s prison and two libraries. An Old Master painting from a national collection had never been displayed in this way before, making this a unique project. In 2021 the National Gallery will tour Jan van Huysum’s Flowers in a Terracotta Vase (1736-7). This dazzling 18th-century painting will ‘pop up’ in six new unusual locations across the UK with the aim of promoting wellbeing and engaging intergenerational communities, including those most affected by Covid-19, such as vulnerable young people and socially isolated adults. The Gallery will work with local cultural and community partners to maximise long-term impact. New developments in our digital offer, responding to the challenges of lockdown, will extend our reach.

National Gallery

The National Gallery is one of the greatest art galleries in the world. Founded by Parliament in 1824, the Gallery houses the nation’s collection of paintings in the Western European tradition from the late 13th to the early 20th century. The collection includes works by Bellini, Cézanne, Degas, Leonardo, Monet, Raphael, Rembrandt, Renoir, Rubens, Titian, Turner, Van Dyck, Van Gogh and Velázquez. The Gallery’s key objectives are to enhance the collection, care for the collection and provide the best possible access to visitors.

VICTORIA AND ALBERT MUSEUM, London, United Kingdom

‘V&A Innovate’: a national contest inviting students to submit solutions addressing current issues, based on themes inspired by the museum’s collections.


About the project

V&A Innovate is an annual, digital first National Schools Challenge, asking students (ages 11 – 14) to work in teams to design a solution to a modern-day issue, with the themes each year being inspired by the museum’s collections. Teachers deliver the challenge in the classroom, using our online resource hub and training, inspiring our next generation of designers and creatives.  

Contact : Chloe Johnson, Head of Grants, cam.johnson@vam.ac.uk

About the museum

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) is the world’s leading museum of art, design and performance. Today, we house 2.3 million objects spanning 5,000 years of human ingenuity. We bring this collection to life through stunning displays in our permanent galleries, ground-breaking exhibitions, world-class research and inclusive learning activities. 

The museum was founded to inspire and educate the designers and makers of the future. Our founding director, Henry Cole, called the museum ‘a schoolroom for everyone’ and this remains an aspiration of the museum to this day. 

We are thrilled and delighted to win Art Explora’s Académie des beaux-arts European Award for V&A Innovate, the V&A Museum's national, digital-first design challenge for young people, inspired by our collection spanning 5000 years and showcasing multiple creative disciplines.  The Award comes at a time when creative education has never been more vital for young people, building life skills in problem solving, collaboration and critical thinking. This award is a wonderful endorsement of and testimony to the tireless work of educators and young people in the challenging context of a global pandemic, in which the role of museums as places of empowerment and inspiration for the next generation of creative thinkers cannot be underestimated. The Award will enable us to continue to expand V&A Innovate and help support young people to look to their futures with optimism and agency through the lens of design. We are extremely grateful to Art Explora for recognising the value of this programme.

MONNAIE DE PARIS, Paris, France

‘The senses of memory’: development of a digital, multi-sensory museum guide kit on the history and art of coin minting, reaching out to engage senior citizens with specific care needs.

 About the project

‘The senses of memory’ is a multi-sensory and inter-generational educational kit, specially designed to engage elderly visitors with memory-related care needs. The project transforms coinage, already the most widely circulated and handled art form in the world, into a tool for the activation of individual and collective memory.

Contact : Stéphanie Molinard - Head of Programmes and Cultural Action- stephanie.molinard@monnaiedeparis.fr

About the museum

The Musée de la Monnaie de Paris (Paris Mint) and its adjoining production facility are devoted to the metalworking arts. A unique setting for multi-sensory experiences, the institution highlights the unique craftsmanship involved in minting, by putting the people hard at work in its ateliers at the heart of the museum’s exhibition route. Developed using a universal design approach in order to make it accessible to all, the experience gives visitors the freedom to explore behind the scenes of this temple of craftsmanship and coinage, pulling them into a fantastical world overflowing with expression, mythology and treasures - the fascinating world of coin minting.

Receiving the Art Explora - Académie des beaux-arts European Award is the result of Monnaie de Paris’ continuous efforts to
promote accessibility, particularly to those suffering from Alzheimer’s disease and related conditions. This is a great honour
for us as it reinforces our commitment to open up to a broader audience.
With Les sens de la mémoire, the Monnaie de Paris aims to develop a multi-sensory and digital traveling kit that would meet
the needs of the elderly. The project will offer a full range of activities using coins – objects indistinguishably linked to economic exchanges and social interactions - to stimulate memory through cognitive, artistic and sensory mediation.

Museum at home’: allowing local residents to exhibit a work of art in their home for a weekend.

 

About the project

When museum doors are shut, art comes knocking at the neighbours’ house!

The museum offers local residents the opportunity to exhibit one of its artworks in their home for a weekend. The project strengthens bonds between the artworks, the museum, the local area and the general public, who benefit from the opportunity to (re)discover the collections in an intimate setting, buoyed by a highly personalized mediation process.

About the museum

Founded in 1892, the Musée d’Ixelles is a prominent venue in the Belgian cultural scene. Its permanent collections boast over 12,000 artworks, offering a broad perspective on Belgian art from the 19th century up to the present day, and including a number of ‘happy accidents’ such as works by Miró, Picasso and the full collection of Toulouse-Lautrec’s original poster art. Currently undergoing a massive renovation and expansion project, the Musée d’Ixelles is deploying a transition project of ‘dynamic closure’ both inside and outside its walls, operating under the label ‘Museum in Progress’ until its expected reopening in 2024.

‘Museum at home ‘ is a project that gets people involved and builds new relationships. It’s also a great lesson in humility for the museum staff, as the artwork’s status and appropriation are completely revisited. With the program now in its sixth edition, winning the Art Explora award is a fantastic opportunity to further develop what has been an extraordinary adventure, by bringing it to another local neighbourhood whose residents are notably less familiar with the museum.”
