The MIOS-Kit

A MIOS-kit contains everything that is needed to organize a museum in the street from behind each window. The residents showcase something from their daily lives, they can use the MIOS-postcards that are included to motivate each other to participate, they can praise each other’s work with the “like” stickers or start a conversation with the MIOS-postcard.

Your very own museum

The result is a variety of personal show windows. It is wonderful to see, not only for the neighbors but also for us, how people translate their enthusiasm in their mini-museum. It is no surprise that MIOS immediately became the number one topic of conversation in the neighborhood.
