As a content researcher at the Museum of Tomorrow (2015 - 2019), I worked closely with the curatorship of the museum. My work included content research to give support to temporary exhibitions; data and content research to maintain the main exhibition of the museum up to date; editing pieces authored by specialists to the museum's website - as well as writing other pieces myself; liaising scientists, policymakers and partners with the several areas of the museum by sharing common subjects and content. I also worked on editing and updating structural documents of the museum (such as the curatorial plan) and on creating documents of this same nature (such as the museum's overarching Science Communication plan). My work also encompassed the planning and execution of new products (such as Google Art Project galleries) and other editorial content.
My role also included the design and leadership of special projects, both in-house and in partnership with other institutions. These included:
- Development and coordination of the "Tomorrow in Research" program, which started in 2016 with liasing the Museum and researchers that looked for the institution to study it - and developed into a more robust program that includes grants to researchers and joint studies with international scholars in museums, science communication and public perception of climate change.
- Development and joint coordination (with the British Council Brazil) of the "Women in Science and Innovation" training scheme, which is a pillar of BC's "Women in Science" Program. This is an important part of the overarching Women in Science agenda I led with colleagues from the Education and Community Relations teams at the Museum of Tomorrow.
- Development and coordination of the "Food for Tomorrow" project (Training program to develop content and socio-educational approaches towards a food and agriculture touring exhibition), one of the six projects selected by the British Council Brazil as Newton Fund Institutional Skills awardees in 2017. In partnership with the Science Museum Group in Britain, the project allowed for staff exchange, training of local businesses and community leaders on avoiding food waste, and carried on knowledge exchange in exhibition development.
In 2018, I was nominated, along with the Content team, for the Jabuti Award 2018 for the co-authorship of the "Manual de Inovanças" catalog. Inovanças (Apr/2017 - Feb/2018) was the first in-house temporary exhibition we designed and received over 400 thousand visitors. Jabuti is the most prestigious literary prize in Brasil and is awarded yearly in 18 different categories.
The Museum of Tomorrow is a public cultural institute of the city of Rio de Janeiro and has sustainability and conviviality as its main ethical pillars. It is managed by the Instituto de Desenvolvimento e Gestão (IDG). Since its opening in late 2015, the museum has been awarded multiple prizes, including the Leading Culture Destinations Awards in 2016, in the Museum Architecture of the Year category - along with Tate Modern Switch House in London, and The Broad in Los Angeles.
