Museums and Makers Inspiring Each Other

What happens when a maker comes into contact with a museum? The Chester Beatty is pleased to team up with a dynamic, enthusiastic group of makers from the local community and the arts, sciences and cultural sectors. We will look at collections, including ours, to spark ideas and identify how museums can provide inspiration for creativity. This event is facilitated by Don Undeen of BoomHiFive, Georgetown University Maker Hub, and Jenny Siung, Head of Education, Chester Beatty Library, with Jeffrey Roe, TOG Hackerspace Dublin, and Ellen Byrne, Festival of Curiosity. Part of the Making Museum project, an 18-month EU-funded training initiative (Erasmus+ 20172019) exploring how museum staff can up-skill in creativity, innovation, creative collaborations with local maker communities, and embed these ideas in their public programmes for audiences
