Capturing the Journey

This week Cloudberry Studio is in Phoenix, Arizona, participating in the annual Association of Children’s Museums conference. We have only been here a few hours, and we know it’s going to be an incredible week! This year we will not only participate in the MarketPlace, but will will also be leading a session. This session, “Journeys of Emergence and Reinvention” discusses three emerging museums and follows one through a year of development.

When we set out to produce this rough documentary a year ago, we had no idea what the journey would look like. As a design firm, we are often brought into a project after the museum has gained ground in the community, a building site, and financial support. We rarely get to see how these museum get there. As advocates for children’s museums, we felt it was not just important – it was our duty to go into the trenches with an emerging museum and share their story.

We will present this video tomorrow, sharing the victories and challenges we have witnessed following our friends at Imaginosity Discovery Center. We hope that it not only inspires our audience, full of other emerging museums just like Imaginosity, but reminds them of why we do what we do. If you are here at ACM this week, we hope you will join us! If not, we look forward to sharing the outcome with you very soon.
