Five projects that form the exhibition in MAO park are the outcomes of collaboration between different organisations in the Fužine neighbourhood where MAO is located and students from the Academy of Fine Arts and Design and the Faculty of Arts. They tackled community challenges using design methods, approaches and tools. The exhibition presents the prototypes of social innovations that have the potential for realization.

The second edition of The Museum in Community picks up where the first left off, having laid the foundations for collective action of the Fužine community organizations. Our aim is to show how strong a community can be when it connects across generations and institutions. Architecture and design, as reflected in everyday life, are entry points for connecting with the community. The museum environment is a place for knowledge exchange and co-creation and represents a safe environment where we can think openly, ask questions, test ideas, exchange experiences, experiment, and debate.

By placing the scene of the event in the park, which connects the public space between the museum and the neighbourhood, we want to enable accessibility, to foster the inclusion of vulnerable groups presledek preveč and also attract those visitors who would not otherwise visit Fužine’s institutions. We are opening up MAO park as a space for community events that are shaped on intergenerational collaboration, knowledge-sharing within the community, public participation, and interaction between Fužine institutions. Through gatherings, events and workshops, we test the scope and effects of joint action, and we offer the presented social innovations a place to test them in reality.
