Responding to found and everyday objects
MOOP creates workshops that support participants to find creative ways to respond to everyday objects. Teaching museum and archiving theory, studying artists work and practice based sessions where participants are introduced to creative skills for exploring their objects or collections. These workshops are for members of the public or can be used as launch pads for discussion at an event.
The first ‘pop-up” museum was filled with installations/exhibits created by participants following a 6 week programme of thes workshops. Working with guest speakers, visiting artists and ourselves and leading to powerful work. We have also developed bespoke workshops for events including Brighton’s Chamber of Commerce ‘Look Up’ Summit, where MOOP created an interactive event during which participants expressed questions or requests for their businesses through found objects. These objects were made into an interactive museum exhibition that people could peruse and then respond to with answers, their own queries, or attach business cards in response to people whom they felt they could help. This created a totally new and unique way of networking.
