Since February 2021, Fusion Arts has been participating in the Happy Museum Project's No Going Back peer learning programme alongside the Museum of Oxford. The programme is intended to build museums' power to draw on past stories of rapid transition and transformation and seeks to inspire museums and their communities to shape new stories and actions to specifically address the climate and ecological emergency.
The programme has involved a range of workshops and talks that are aimed at making creative organisations and museums truly question their relationship with a changing society and what they should be doing to have a meaningful impact. Bringing together artists, curators, activists, directors and more, the programmes' schedule has been jam-packed with eye-opening and reflective discussions.
How can museums re-consider their social impact in regards to climate change? What are their social responsibilities? And, what steps can they take to address them?
You can read more about the important mission and goals of the Happy Museum Project here and more about the specifics of No Going Back here as well as to find recordings of many of the talks and discussions.
