Project Status – 24 November 2014


For this course we ended up studying the Movember movement, awareness campaign participation and visibility in social media. How do current public awareness campaigns successfully use social media and visible public participation? What are the inducements and dynamics of participating in a social media campaign? What is the praxis of collecting and archiving of culturally relevant data? These are but a few of the questions we want to approach during our project, {MUST+ACHE} 2014.

Welcome to the Course!

Hi all,

I have made all the active participants of the Course as Admins for this site. This Site will be the future home of any archive initiatives undertaken by you. I will also post some of my suggestions and plans. As of now, please post ideas here and later on we shall file them under another subcategory in the final archive. You are also free to tinker with the looks, appearance and interface of the site as a team.

We meet on Monday 29.9. The session will be about Interface for Museums and Cultural Heritage.  Pertti Lähteenmäki, Digital Head of EMMA Museum of Modern Art will talk about the initiatives taken at his museum.

Until then, please try to come up with a short text that elaborates your theme for curation. A visual could also help. We could try to have a broad-all-encompassing theme to have all participants of the course to be an active stakeholder in an appropriate role. Not all have to be pioneers and originators, some of us like myself want to be just facilitators.

Best Wishes, Samir
