Abstract

How are museum collections used as a source of inspiration by creative practitioners? This article describes a project, Inspiration Examined, funded by Share Academy,which used a narrative research method to critically examine the process of inspiration, using interviews with students carried out at the Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA). Share Academy was a partnership project between University College London (UCL), University of the Arts London (UAL) and the London Museums Group, with the aim of exploring the potential for more effective and mutually beneficial collaborations between Higher education and specialist London museums
