Our Museum of Us


Our Museum of Us: Curating your Family’s Past into a Digital Future

SKU: 1869 Category:


Sometimes our stuff possesses us, as much as we possess it. As we accumulate treasures and objects over the course our lives, we come to value the stories and experiences they reflect, but don’t take time to curate things in our “My Museum of Me.” Stories, experiences, and values are lost when the objects are misplaced in time, locked away in storage units, or discarded at the end of one’s life. This book proposes families engage in the process of curation, which includes listening to elders’ stories about their things, making digital stories to archive the values these items hold for their owner(s) and keep these digital stories for generations to come. In short create an “Our Museum of Us.”
