The Maritime and History Museum of the Croatian Littoral Rijeka is a partner in the project DREAM (Digital Reality and Educational Activities in Museums) which is being implemented through the Erasmus+ programme, KA2 – Cooperation for Innovation and the Exchange of Good Practices, KA201 – Strategic Partnerships for school education. The applicant and lead partner is the M9 District S.r.l. Other partners are the Maritime and History Museum of Croatian Littoral Rijeka, CTK Rijeka (Centar tehničke kulture Rijeka), Mapa das Ideias, Camara Municipal de Peiras, Postimuseossaation SR and Stati Generali dell’Innovazione di Promozione Sociale.
The expected outputs of the project are:
• defining a methodology that codifies in a detailed way how to establish a collaboration practice with a museum, from the signing of the initial agreement to the staging of the performance, going through scriptwriting, making the digital scenography and setting it up in augmented reality;
• developing a digital platform to support all the processes described in the methodology. The platform also includes a repository of cultural OERs, created by partner museums and made available to teachers to enrich their digital scenographies;
• developing a blended course for teachers, that uses exemplary scenarios to guide them step by step up to the staging of their first museatrical performance.
The DREAM project involves 45 teachers from Italy, Croatia and Portugal and 900 students, 30 of them with learning difficulties. In each participating nation, at the end of the project, each teacher will have staged his/her own museatrical performance at the partner museum. The best ones will be awarded in the final public opening events of each national museater. In a special international event at the Postimuseo of Tampere in Finland, that will be broadcastend in streaming, all partner museums will stage a co-produced transcultural museatrical performance, using materials developed by the schools during the project. The absolute best museatrical performance will also be awarded on this occasion.
