Our Current Event

Remix the Ship

HMS Belfast Remix Event – 26th – 28th May 2017

Despite much enthusiasm from the OCL Community  and IWM we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone our remix event on HMS Belfast until a future date. As a community we want to ensure we all take part in and deliver an event that everyone can benefit from and this requires both a strong mix of participants and a demonstrated contribution of in-kind equipment and expertise from all our partners and sponsors.  Due to a number of unforeseen factors we feel that we haven’t got this balance right for the event planned at the end of May, and so we’ll endeavour to rework and deliver the event at a later date and produce an event that everyone will feel proud to be part of and of the quality that has come to be expected from our OCL Community. Thank you for your continued support.

Making our own community

Future of MuseomixUK

Broad Background

Since last year, we wanted to expand MuseomixUK Community to expand our horizon into non-museums and what we can do internally as a community. To achieve this, we wanted to make our own community, keeping some of the Museomix ethos but adding our own personality and ethos to the mix.  


Expand ethos behind our community to other areas (along with museums and art galleries) such as NHS, care homes, dementia, arthritis, homeless, young people, libraries with the understanding that we are not in it for the money – we’re in it for the sharing, learning, caring.  

To ensure our community is able to fulfill our mission* we will organize workshops and learning days to allow for continued professional development (CPD) within our skillsets.
