Be a Museomixer

People make museums! At Museomix, we believe strongly in sharing knowledge and skills for greater creativity. During the event, we connect different profiles in teams to allow new perspectives and ideas to emerge. Each team chooses a challenge to tackle during 3 days and is composed of 7 profiles.


Everyone can apply to be a Museomixer.
We don’t accept applications as teams, but we support everyone to apply individually. All teams exist of seven different profiles & the teams get formed on the first day of the hackathon.

When everyone got the tour of the museum, we do a big tombola to form the teams. Everyone can choose the challenge they want to work on and we try to give everyone their first choice.

Practical details

The 2020 edition

This year, the event will take place on 6-7-8 NOVEMBER in Brussels. Given the uncertainty of holding an event 'as we know it', we are adjusting our usual format. But worry not, we're still thinking big:

  • A multi-museum event: Get to know and co-create with professionals from three different museums during the event.
  • An external location: Because we want to avoid burdening a single museum with the logistics of the event, the our hackathon will take place in an exciting venue in Brussels, such as a FabLab.
  • Shared challenges: You will tackle themes relevant across museums and likely to stay crucial for the foreseeable future, with a strong digital element.
What does Museomix cost? 

We ask for a €50 admission fee that helps us cover the cost of the great weekend you get in return.
