Reorganisation of depositories
More than sixty percent of all museum collections stored in depots worldwide are kept in unfavourable conditions. The RE-ORG method tackles this problem by supporting poorly equipped museums in their reorganisation and helping them to make improvements. The method has already been successfully implemented in 146 museums in more than 30 countries. This is often done with the support of institutions that coordinate the strategy nationally, such as KIK.
After the reorganisation of the depots, the collections are ready to be examined, exhibited or rediscovered by the local community. In order to encourage RE-ORG museums to turn this potential into reality, KIK, together with national and international RE-ORG partners, launched a competition to promote the creative use of the collections: SHARE-ORG. The winners will submit their latest and most innovative ideas to bring stored collections out from under the dust and into the limelight once again.
