University Take Over the Museum

Season 2

Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi

Calling all university students and alumni!
Following the first season's success of ‘University Take Over the Museum’, Louvre Abu Dhabi presents the Sustainability Challenge: ‘Make the Intangible Tangible or the Tangible Intangible'. The challenge is open to creative minds across the UAE to explore museums' role in sustainability and how they can contribute to a legacy for future generations.

Students are invited to explore the museum and draw inspiration from our collection, message, and core values to create their own artistic intervention in response to the challenge – they can perform, interact, present research, or any other form of creative activities, and engage with our visitors.

Selected projects will be presented in the museum, showcasing students' creativity, innovation, and commitment to sustainable practices. Proposals should address the challenge and reflect the narrative of Louvre Abu Dhabi as a universal museum, embracing cultural diversity while highlighting cultural connections.
