The pop-up museums of Singapore’s communities are places where initiatives and projects in the different communities are on show. Artifacts, presentations, stories (video), the works. By doing so, the pop-up museums are bringing the initiatives of one community to others.
But of course, there’s more. The pop-up museums will also be home to workshops, where people teach eachother how to start a new initiative, or certain specific skills needed.
And: there’s room for conversation and debate and getting to know each other.
Small kits can be prepared, that function as display cases. Maybe featuring items and photos that tell the story of the neighbourhoods. These museums-in-a-box can be put on counters at cafes or in stores.
Museum on a stick
A USB stick with instructions and videos for making your own pop-up museum could be made available to people who want to start their own pop-up museum of Singapore's communities. The contents will have some guidelines, initial things to show, and mainly: inspiration on how to curate a great collection.
Update: Void decks
As Maria explained, in many HDB blocks, if not all, there are void decks on the ground floor, which are empty spaces available to rent for functions. When these are not rented out, they could perfectly be venues for the pop-up museums of Singapore's communities! Seems like a natural fit!
Update: multimedia mobile exhibitions
In collaboration with Johan's MP3 tourism concept, and as per the suggestion of Katrina, the pop-up museums of Singapore's communities could be great users and creators of multimedia content (audio and video) that people can download onto their mobile phones and listen or watch when they're going around town. I see a great opportunity for collaboration, here.
