Merel van der Vaart

Merel van der Vaart is city history curator at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam (city museum of Schiedam). Over the past 10 years, she has worked with a number of museums across Europe on projects that build bridges between collections and people.

Merel prefers to use digital as one of many tools to explore and create relevance, participation, radical trust and knowledge sharing. Two important projects she is involved with at the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam is the revaluation of the museum’s historic collections and the online representation of these collections, in collaboration with the city’s inhabitants.
