Thoughts behind the Museum

May 27, 2019 | News

The Museum of Human Kindness is an artistic attempt to re-invigorate social harmony, cohesion and mutual respect by drawing on stories of human kindness contributed by the public to create new works of art by participating artists. It is where intangible acts of kindness manifest into tangible works of art. The aim is to nurture conversations and reflections on why kindness as a virtue is well worth embracing. The Museum will take form as a series of pop-up exhibitions where stories and artworks (or “artefacts”) about human kindness will be on public display.

The ultimate aim of the Museum is to join the dialogue on restoring faith in humanity. The initiative comes at a critical juncture where we see a world increasingly destabilized by extreme views. Feelings of fear, aggression and distrust of “others” endanger our carefully crafted sense of social resilience and cohesion—hallmarks of civil societies. The Museum is a peaceful act of resistance to counteract corrosive actions. It offers a safe space for communities to come together and re-evaluate our social system.

The Museum, it should be made clear, is not a political act or a form of activism. Instead, it is an expression of will to explore who we are beyond the self and self-interests. The Museum, above all, is a place and an invitation to reflect on what makes mankind a kind human.
