The Museo Ambulante or Walking Museum brings community history to life through an interactive outdoor museum experience by exploring Latinx youth activism in the Willamette Valley through the historic 2016 walkout that sparked a state-wide movement for equity and racial justice in education.
The Museo Ambulante uses designed yard signs to visually mark the route of the walkout and visitors will be able to interact by walking and using their mobile devices to scan QR codes printed on the signs. Those QR codes, in turn, will route visitors to photographs, videos, art, poetry, chants, slogans, and other ephemera created by youth in support of the walkout.
Visitors will also be invited to engage with the project by contributing their own memories, reflections, or experiences of activism, advocacy, and civic engagement in the local community.
