‘A wave of new museums is giving power back to the people by co-producing content with communities and focusing on uniting people around causes rather than places. The Museum of Ordinary People (Moop), the Climate Museum UK, the Museum of Transology, Queerseum and the Museum of Homelessness are among those embracing this new approach. And the Museums Association’s (MA) Conference & Exhibition in Brighton in October will hold a session looking at the idea of creating a museum dedicated to exploring black British heritage. These institutions are using grassroots engagement with people, and providing skills and a sense of belonging in exchange for the labour contributed by audiences. By uniting around a particular message – often the need to tell stories on topics and people that have previously been marginalised – these museums can react quickly to emerging events. But as many don’t have permanent residences, they can suffer from practical problems such as a lack of space to store collections and having to rely on small numbers of staff who are often under a lot of pressure. Despite these challenges, moving to more traditional models could mean they would lose some of what makes them special and different’
