The MUDEC hosts the fourth edition of the cultural participation project of the Municipality of Milan, ‘Distretto X: with your eyes‘, conceived to connect the Civic Museums with the city and the communities living in it.
The 2023 project involved people from the municipal CDDs (Centri Diurni Disabili) and Milanese associations dealing with mental health. The participants, with the support of operators and mediation tools, traced a geography of places and suggestions coming from the chosen work: possible and impossible journeys linked to the emotional sensitivity of each individual participant.
Thanks to the collaboration of IED (Istituto Europeo del Design) students, they have created videos describing their experience at the museum, giving a particular view of the city of Milan ‘through their eyes’.
The aim of ‘Distretto X’ is to enhance the participation of all citizens in the Civic Museums. By involving both Milanese communities and isolated and socially marginalized users, the project draws public’s attention to an idea of a museum that is increasingly open and connected to the territory, fostering a sense of belonging to the city and its museums.
