2018 – MOOP
In May 2018 we were so happy to collaborate with MOOP – The Museum of Ordinary People, a pop up museum that celebrates the ripples people leave behind. We created an installation which invited visitors to the Museum to take a moment of reflection. One of the biggest things that we have learned at Miss Rep is the power of talking, sharing thoughts and concerns, asking for support, offering support and seeing that we are really not all that different.
There is power in standing as a community and hearing each other . We invited people take a square of Miss Rep wallpaper and anonymously share a worry or concern. Others would then find these and write a message of love, support or advice in response. All of this is completely anonymous. Once complete, these were paste onto the wall or placed in an object or drawer for others to read and discover.
We also joined Lucy and Jolie, MOOP founders, in a discussion to celebrate our shared passion for providing a platform for people to share their stories and exploring the need to create space for unheard voices in arts and culture, before we took to the stage and share some new creations in music and spoken word, including a special performance from Miss Rep artist, Cate Ferris.
