“Museumable – home objects reimagined” online event with three Goldsmiths Design graduates & researchers

When: 12 November, 18:00 and 14 November, 11:00

Where: Online

Join Goldsmiths Design researchers, lecturers & alumni Daniella Zlotogoura, Lili Golmohammadi, and Becca Rose Glowacki for an online workshop exploring the idea of curating a shared home museum collection. You are invited to choose an object from your home to share in this workshop.

With many having recently spent more time than ever at home, we explore the objects we find ourselves most drawn to. How do these objects live alongside us? And how might they connect to each other?

The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in being creative – no prior training in design or art required.
