Social Science Encounters
Social Science Encounters is an endeavor being planned by The Omnimuseum Project beginning in 2017. The goal of Social Science Encounters is to engage people in everyday public settings in ways that deepen their sense of empathy and recognition of a common ground with others around them.

Social Science Encounters will begin with a charrette bringing together practitioners from the fields of social science, education, art and design, to envision strategies and tactics for addressing (and ideally softening) the barriers built between people through political rhetoric, and cultural misconceptions.

Charrette Format: Charrette participants will work in teams to develop concepts addressing questions like: How can people be prompted in public spaces to reflect critically on their own assumptions and prejudices? How can people be engaged in thinking more deeply about their social relationships with others around them? How might the divisions we believe stand between us become more permeable – reminding us we all have more in common than we have differences?
Concepts generated during the charrette will be made publicly available and considered for real world prototyping in 2018.

Dates and Time: July 8th, 2017 - 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

Location: The Peale Center, 225 Holliday St., Baltimore MD

How to Participate: If you are interested in participating in the charrette for Social Science Encounters please contact us at omnimuseum@gmail.com.

Natural Science Encounters  
The Omnimuseum Project will be hosting a charrette focused on creating natural science encounters in everyday places. Practitioners from the fields of natural science, design, and education will collaborate on ways of translating ordinary places, things and phenomena into thought provoking encounters with the natural world. Concepts generated during the charrette will be made publicly available and considered for real world prototyping in 2018.

Charrette Format:   The charrette for Natural Science Encounters will be conducted primarily through on-line collaboration tools such as Skype and Slack and will be the first charrette conducted by the Omnimuseum Project, in this way. Participants will work in teams to develop concepts for engaging the public in unexpected and informative ways with the natural world around them.

Date and Time: To be announced 

How to Participate:   If you are interested in participating in the charrette for Natural Science Encounters please contact us at omnimuseum@gmail.com.
