WHAT WE DO
Streaming Museum produces and presents a worldview brought into focus through art and its interconnections, that flows through the website, public spaces and cultural centers.
Since 2008 the museum’s exhibitions have reached millions of people on 7 continents – from North Pole to South Pole, world cities to remote locations.
WHY WE DO IT
We believe that the arts and technology channel inspiration and knowledge that help to make the world a better place.
WHAT DRIVES OUR PROGRAMMING
Streaming Museum’s programs are inspired by the “overview effect” which describes the transforming experience of astronauts looking at earth in space. And in parallel to this, the “worldview effect” of looking at the world through the arts, people, cultures and visionary ideas, is a key element in this transforming experience. Technology has made it possible to watch the entire world. The question is … what do we see, and what needs to be attended to.
Streaming Museum’s content presents a worldview through the perspectives of the arts, sciences, technology, global economics, geopolitics, and interdependence, the future, and cultural diversities and commonalities, and more.
