Museum Buddy

These films were created as part of a series for the online project Museum Buddy.
Museum Buddy was initiated by Shannen Johnson from the Peace Museum to buddy up museums and/or museum professionals each week to share stories from museum collections on Twitter, and to keep the museum community connected during lockdown!

Jessica and Mariana were connected through Museum Buddy to explore how neurodiversity is represented in museums. Together they came up with a list of objects and invited others with direct experience of neurodiversity to reflect on how these objects engage with this subject matter. The varied reflections gathered have been presented in video format, and released as an online series shared initially on Twitter the week beginning Monday December 7th 2020, with each day a different object being featured and discussed.
