A workshop that explores the potential of museums to unleash the power of the imagination in their audiences and communities. Find out why the power of the imagination could be so vital at this pivotal moment and how our collective imagination could help shape our museums, our lives and the places we live?

The session comprises brief provocations followed by a facilitated discussion to explore these ideas in the context of your own museum or cultural practice:

  • Rob Hopkins, author of From What Is, to What If – Unleashing the power of the imagination to create the future we want
  • Hannah Fox, Director of Projects and Programmes at Derby Museum – How a community’s imagination shaped The Museum of Making
  • Lucy Neal, Happy Museum Associate and Author of Playing for Time – How to hold space for people’s imaginations to flourish.

Part of the Happy Museum No Going Back workshop series.
