The Museum of Human Kindness is an art project where stories of kindness inspire new art making
The project is an attempt to restore faith in humanity through creativity. The museum is a platform where people are invited to contribute stories of human kindness that they have received from complete strangers. A selected group of artists will then create work inspired by these stories. The museum is a place where intangible acts of kindness are turned into tangible experiences.
The aim of the museum is to create a reflective space for discussions on kindness as a universal virtue of mankind. The project is motivated by a desire to counter the growing prevalence of polarising narratives seen in everyday media. Yet, for most of us, our everyday interactions with not only family and friends but also with strangers are characterized by goodwill, civility, and acts of kindness. The museum attempts to highlight these acts—small and large—and emphasise the common humanity that binds us together.
