it's never been so important to understand ourselves, others, and the world we share...
... and there's never been so much to understand
A 21st century Museum
for a 21st century literacy
Each Ubuntu Lab is a three part journey. An exhibition space to explore our social world. A cafe to reflect and debrief with friends. And a studio to learn 21st century skills and put them into action.
By creating smaller museums that are networked together, and allowing visitors to contribute their experience to exhibits, a Lab is uniquely connected to perspectives around the block and around the world
In The World.
Using our digital exhibit platform to extend learning beyond our doors, we are reinventing the field trip, bringing learning into family and classroom discussions, and augmenting learning in real time in real life.
