Lille Palace of Fine Arts

Hello Mister Palais des Beaux-Arts
3 days, we said 3 days !
During 3 days, this beautiful museum of international influence will be our playground. Museomixers from all around the world, of all ages, members of Museomix Nord, museum staff will be invited to question and experiment together the situation of digital and collaborative creation, a central topic for the museum since many years.

This well-known museum has just been awarded, side by side with the not-so-far Louvre Lens, the “Osez le Musée” grand prize from the Culture and Communication Ministry! That was a true acknowledgement of the values defended of the Palais des Beaux arts, especially innovation and accessibility

2/ Museomix Kid

Museomix Kid is a Museomix… for kids (what a surprise !).
During the afternoon, they will browse the museum in a brand new way. Introduced to the hidden aspects of the museum, they will be able to imagine its future and the arts outreach of tomorrow. What if the exhibition rooms became a real playground ? What adventure and experience would they like to live in a museum ? What would they change ? For an out-of-time afternoon, all those questions are all in their hands. They are free to create, imagine, interact… even in terms of technology. We built for them an ephemeral creative laboratory where they will be able to build, test and present their prototypes… to the visitors.
There is only one prerequisite : to be inventive and curious !

The plan :
After a quick visit, all children are invited to Museomix like the adults for approximately 5 hours on Saturday afternoon.

3 years, 3 museums :

The Manufacture of Roubaix in 2015
The Arkéos Museum of Douais in 2016 with two local classes and around 20 kids used to the museum
