4. Target audiences
Target group of 'Museum Speed Dating Game' on one hand were museum experts, especially curators; and young adults, aged between 18 and 35 (muse- um’s non-visitors) on the other. The goal was to place the curators into an unknown situation, out of their comfort zone, where they needed to persuade the young adults one-on-one with their multi-layered mu- seum object. At the same time, it gave non-visitors the strength to select, what they wish to see at the exhibition and to see and be acquainted with muse- um staff. Later on, the non-visitors worked on their selected objects in order to prepare an exhibition.
5. Funds
