Whether the goal is to promote dialogue or creative expression, shared learning or co-creative work, the design process starts with a simple question: Designers have answered versions of this question for many kinds of visitor experiences and goals in cultural institutions.
Professionals know how to write labels for different audiences. They know what kinds of physical interactions promote competitive play and which promote contemplative exploration.
And while they may not always get it right, they are guided by the expectation that design decisions can help them successfully achieve content and experience goals. When it comes to developing participatory experiences in which visitors create, share, and connect with each other around content the same design thinking applies.
The chief difference between traditional and participatory design techniques is the way that information flows between institutions and users. In traditional exhibits and programs, the institution provides content for visitors to consume.
Designers focus on making the content consistent and high quality, so that every visitor, regardless of her background or interests, receives a reliably good experience.

This is a fundamental shift; in addition to producing consistent content, participatory institutions must also design opportunities for visitors to share their own content in meaningful and appealing ways. Participatory projects make relationships among staff members, visitors, community participants, and stakeholders more fluid and equitable.
They open up new ways for diverse people to express themselves and engage with institutional practice. Making Participation Physical and Scalable Most institutions prefer to experiment with participation behind closed doors.
