Power to the people

My ‘Hurrah!’ moment from the MA conference: when David Anderson (Director of Learning & Interpretation at the Victoria & Albert Museum) said:

  • people have a right to be involved as producers of culture – not only as its consumers

and

  • scholarship and participation need not be in conflict.

So why do so many museums still hog the authorial seat?

You can download his conference paper (PDF). In fact, you can read more of David Anderson’s good ideas about museums and learning.
