WESEUM is our global series of community-curated pop-up museums designed to make invisible people visible.
WESEUM builds understanding and breaks down barriers for groups that are stigmatised or oppressed.
WESEUM is a unique and innovative concept – a space that empowers communities to own their narratives and rise above the stereotypisation and misrepresentation, through exhibiting the everyday objects/artefacts/mementos they feel best represent their stories and selves, in this way fostering empathy and promoting a common humanity.
In the first edition of WESEUM, Fine Acts asked the people from a destroyed Roma neighbourhood two questions: "What makes you happy?” and “What makes you sad?”, which they answered with an object. The exhibition includes the collection of these items.
The first WESEUM was supported by the Davis Projects for Peace.
Watch this space for the next editions.
