Playable Museum Award 2019
The Museo Marino Marini in Florence, Italy launches the second edition of the “Playable Museum Award”. The open call challenges creatives and visionaries from all over the world to imagine the museum of the future – a “playable” museum, an interactive museum where technology fuels creativity, stimulating ideas through play.
Submissions should propose ideas that involve experimentation and playfulness, offer a creative use of technology, and work to rethink the connection between people, the artworks, and the museum. The only limit is your imagination. A commission of international experts from prestigious institutions will evaluate the submissions and will assist the winners in carrying out their project.
Opportunity Focus Areas:
ALL WORLD COUNTRIES.
The winner will be announced in July 2019.
- Artists, designers, urban planners, cultural managers, stylists, makers, artisans, developers, storytellers, architects, game designers, video game creators, musicians, writers, graphic artists, physicists, mathematicians, biologists, chemists, and creators of virtual/augmented reality… but above all, Imagineers and dreamers accustomed to thinking outside the box and capable of turning their proposed ideas into a concrete reality.
- The projects must be new and original, and not previously proposed or published.
- Projects do not need to focus on the “Museo Marino Marini” specifically, or any museum in particular, but instead they should address the concept of the “museum” in its broadest sense.
- They must not be submitted for consideration elsewhere at the date of application. In addition, the project must be feasible and implementable during 2019.
- Individuals, groups of individuals, non-profit, and for-profit organizations from any country in the world may participate.
- The project selected by the jury will receive both tangible and intangible support in order to give life to their idea and launch a prototypal version of the project. In particular, the chosen project will have access to:
- a grant of € 10.000 (ten thousand Euro) dedicated to the realization of a prototype of the project
- support from mentors and advisors for the implementation of the chosen idea
