Designing dialogue

Designing dialogues for an ethnographic museum – Waag Society

  • Have a clear research goal per sessions
  • Avoid consultation and focus on empowerment and co-creation
  • Create a save spot during the sessions
  • Guarantee equality between the participants
  • Build a long term relationship between the participants and Dutch Museum of Ethnology
  • Pay attention to the role of the institute: stay neutral and don’t be in constant control during the sessions

Designing dialogues

As Dick van Dijk put it: ‘With young adults, museum staff, and designers all involved in this dialogue, we take the notion of co-creation literally and try to move beyond the use of mere words; actually designing some potential intervention strategies for the museum together ‘hands-on’. This was not an easy task for most. I witnessed a fair amount of procrastination, unease, and reluctance, but in the end – no doubt helped in part by time pressure – we came up with some serious results.

 

During the co-creation sessions we’ve experienced that ‘language’ and tone of voice are both an important point of discussion: museums need to be truthful and shouldn’t ‘disguising’ things since this leads to exclusion of certain people. Besides that, the focus of museums is very much on getting visitors in. The co-creation participants expect the museum coming to their lives, instead of the other way around.

Creolization

“Creolization is the process in which Creole cultures emerge in the New World. As a result of colonization there was a mixture between people of indigenous, African, and European descent, which came to be understood as Creolization. Creolization is traditionally used to refer to the Caribbean; although not exclusive to the Caribbean it can be further extended to represent other diasporas. The mixing of people brought a cultural mixing which ultimately led to the formation of new identities. It is important to emphasize that Creolization also is the mixing of the “old” and “traditional,” with the “new” and “modern.” Furthermore, creolization occurs when participants actively select cultural elements that may become part of or inherited culture. Robin Cohen states that Creolization is a condition in which “the formation of new identities and inherited culture evolve to become different from those they possessed in the original cultures,” and then creatively merge these to create new varieties that supersede the prior forms.”
