The project is planned and structured to:

  • Analyse museum education activities addressed to marginalised people and identify effective practice;

  • Train museum professionals in the use of ICT, with particular reference to Digital Storytelling (DS) as an effective method of engagement and involvement in museum activities;

  • Encourage museums to develop projects aimed at involving marginalised people, using also ICT (namely DS) as a tool of self-expression and communication;

  • Identify tools and methodologies to evaluate the social impact of museum activities;

  • Promote a greater appreciation of the role of scientific museums as a tool to engage adults and promote learning opportunities and social inclusion for disadvantaged groups .

It is structured into five phases:

  • Research into the personal and social benefits to marginalised people of engaging with scientific museums. Download the research;

  • Training in DS addressed to museums professionals and to professionals operating in the social sector cooperating with the museums in the development of activities addressed to marginalised people;

  • Joint planning of museum education initiatives for adult people of different backgrounds, designed to be transferable and relevant to each of the participants’ own professional context (museums and/or social institutions/organisations). DS will be one of the tools used to encourage adults’ engagement and participation;

  • 4)Dissemination through events (conference), Internet (website and social networks), leaflets and a video containing a selection of the stories told using DS and realised by museum/social  professionals and people who participated in museum activities;

  • 5)Exploitation through a Handbook in 4 languages and a Grundtvig training course addressed to 20 museum professionals/social workers.
