ReConnect ReCollect Stories

A digital collaborative space to host the digital narratives created in the Creative Lab of the ReConnect/ReCollect project. The project aims to create dialogues and connect expertise between museum/heritage practitioners and researchers from the UK and the Museum Cagar Budaya (MCB) Group under the Directorate General of Culture of Indonesia, as well as engaging an Indonesian network of researchers, curators & artists. This is the first time that the Science Museum Group collaborate with Indonesian museums, exploring approaches and opportunities that exist for Anglo-Indonesian collaboration around innovative collections research, the wider social and cultural utilization of historic collections and the opportunities that exist to develop new ways of presenting cultural heritage through science, public history and contemporary art angles. The Creative Lab in particular will explore innovative digital practices experimented by heritage institutions to extend their narratives outside the gallery space, connect their collections and include new curatorial voices in the creation of stories.
