Real Rotterdammers – Wat are we making/doing now? Echte Rotterdammers – Wat maken we nou?

Museum Rotterdam, Netherlands

Museum Rotterdam has a long history of participatory projects and co-creation with their audience. Their ambition is to be a modern city museum with strong ties to the local population. In a series of projects, the Museum Rotterdam examined what it means to be a real citizen of Rotterdam. In one of the projects they found that people from Rotterdam like to see themselves as hardworking. In the project ‘Echte Rotterdammers – Wat maken we nou?’ the museum worked with people from the city to research what people are making in the city, and encouraged them to be Makers.
