Museum of Care Rules

This article is a part of the room: Museum of Care as a Project

As an open-source project, the Museum of Care will be happy to see many versions of Care spread around the world. We should try it out, discuss it and develop it.

That’s why we made this Museum.

If you don’t feel comfortable in our Museum for (any) reason, you can just create your own Museum.

We will be glad for you to copy, translate, rewrite or develop texts and images related to any documentation of the principle idea of the Museum of Care under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 License | Museum Of Care 2021 | license.

We would ask you, in the spirit of open-source, for proper acknowledgement of the authors and to include a link to our website.

We would consider it exploitative and unfair if you copy, modify, or distribute any of the Museum of Care’s content without acknowledgement or use Museum of Care project(s) without the prior approval of the curators of those particular projects. They belong to their authors. However, you are welcome to contact the authors/curators and discuss it with them. The Museum of Care has no rights or authority over the Projects of the Museum of Care.

The Museum of Care as project was conceived by David Graeber and Nika Dubrovsky, who jointly come up with the idea in the series of publications. It was developed with the help and support of many people and will always stay a non-commercial, public project for everyone to join.


Please, keep in mind that you are a participant, not a customer.
If you’d like to help us, you can contribute in different ways.

  1. Set up your own room or project
  2. Spread the word. Invite your friends. Explain why it’s important.
  3. Help translating. Design promo materials. Print and distribute stickers.

CURATING AT Museum of cares

If you participate in a collective project, such as a reading group or an exhibition, your rights as a curator are limited. When organizing a room, you can set terms such as “I don’t want to post videos of my group online” or “I want to post videos online”. The members of your group, after reading the terms and conditions, will be able to decide if they are happy with your terms and conditions. Some people want to see themselves online, others are strongly against it. Once everyone agreed, the terms can’t be change.

Unless the curator specifies otherwise, often at the start of the room’s mission statement, it is assumed that the room and all its content are intended for free, non-commercial distribution on the Museum of Caring and the David Graeber Institute’s websites and social media.
