Themes for Discussion

With this second meeting we will continue the discussion we started in the 11th November meeting.
We will focus on two or three exhibits/techniques on display in the galleries of the Crafts Museum. The goal is to explore the use of information communication technologies for:

  • education in museums (for lifelong learning)
  • support and sustainability of handicraft
  • cluster and innovation policy
  • widening and diversifying the constituencies served by the Museum

We hope to arrive at some concrete proposals at the end of the session.


  1. Participants introduce themselves
  2. Ruchira Ghose 'Crafts Museum: a new identity'
  3. Margherita Russo 'Beyond ICT in Museums: HOMM at Crafts Museum as a pilot project on innovation and development for sustainable handicraft'
  4. Discussion with participants about pilot project - information available, multidisciplinary resources required, time for design and implementation, policy issues
  5. Preview of short film by Siddhartha Das on The Lathe
