MIOS (Museum In Onze Straat) is a toolkit to help city councils stimulate social cohesion at street level. In 2012, this project was awarded aHenry Van De Velde Label, a quality label that is awarded annually by Design Vlaanderen to a few products and projects with a good and innovative design.
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.
