A working museum

A workplace should provide a clear and engaging insight into the work that goes on and culture that rests within the organization. Some ventures go further and make their workplace into a working gallery or museum. They demonstrate much of their work visually, through photos and graphs. Some arrange tours and generate income from them. For example, Vauban in Freiburg, Germany and Bo01 in Malmo, Sweden are examples of low-carbon communities which allow visitors to touch, use and see the results as well as see the work of the employees and staff. It is always a useful exercise for a venture to consider how it could best present its work and its social purpose tangibly as if it were a gallery.
