DOES the MUSEUM OF MEMORY AND ORALITIES HAVE A BRICK AND MORTER LOCATION
Not yet. Our museum exists only on a virtual plane.
WHO IS OUR TARGET AUDIENCE?
We want to attract television broadcasters, researchers (especially those in the area of Social Media and Culture of Media), students of Social Communication, and people interested in the theme of “Television”.
WHO CAN INTERACT WITH OUR MUSEUM?
Anyone who wants to share a story related to TV from anywhere in the world. Our project is collaborative and we would like to receive testimonies from children, young people, and adults. We want to know what people think of television considering the past, the present, and the future.
We want to know things like: When did you first watch TV? What influence does TV have in your life and your family’s life? Do you like TV? Why? What does TV mean for you? What do you think about the future of TV? What devices do you use to watch TV on and how often do you watch it? How can we get the public to become more interested in TV? What is like TV like nowadays? How would you like TV to be in the future?
We would love to receive videos from community leaders, youth groups, cultural groups, ethnic groups, religious groups, LGBTI+, journalism students, etc. Send us what you’ve got!
WHY DO WE WANT YOUR HELP TO BUILD OUR MUSEUM?
We want the audience’s perspective about television because they’re the ones who have followed its development throughout the years.
We know television is changing due to digital technology and we want to monitor the impact these changes have on the viewers.
We want to understand in depth what people feel about their experience of watching TV in the contemporary world and, thus, understand the role television plays as a means of contemporary communication.
HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
Record a 10-minute (limit) video telling us about your experience and upload it to YouTube. Then, fill in your details in the “Contact Us” area on our website and insert the link to your video. We will evaluate it and, if approved, publish it in our virtual museum.
