The People's Museum for Prince- call for stories and contributions for April in Minneapolis

Hi everyone

I’m creating The People’s Museum for Prince, to honour his deep impact in our lives. I hope you will consider contributing your story and a photo of a personal object that is linked to your own Prince story for the first exhibition. I've been working full time on this project since Prince's death. It's a project of love, entirely not-for-profit. The museum will start as a single exhibition in April in Minneapolis, in conjunction with the University of Minnesota Symposium Prince from Minneapolis.

More info on the museum project, call for proposals and my background :

www.peoplesmuseumforprince.org

Please send your story and related image by Feb 1. You can also org note me if simpler!

This is an alternative museum, designed to give space to those whose lives were touched by Prince to tell their stories. It’s going to be a multi dimensional exhibition: in addition to collecting people’s personal Prince stories, I’m gathering all kinds of materials together from public domain as I’ve been tracking all the tributes, activities and news daily since his passing. I’ve also been given access to a private Prince collection to work with. I hope to re-tell the story of Prince through the lens of those who loved him.

I would particularly love to hear from members of the org ( long term or new!), as I know how deeply so many who post and visit here feel connected to Prince, whether it's been been over the long years or more recently following his death.

So far I have collected many beautiful, heartfelt, funny and sad stories from around the world. I am keen to receive yours.

I'm also very happy to hear from anyone who would like to participate or contribute to this project in other ways. Just let me know if you have any special skills or want to help out in Minneapolis or from further afield.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for checking this out.

Emma

I recently saw this in a Prince FB group. It looks so amazing and I admire your dedication, drive and spirit!

It still amazes me what a huge collective impact Prince had on so many of our lives. I hope you get fabulous responses and turnouts!

Eventually every cloud runs out of rain.

Nice idea, but I would change the name "Peoples" sounds like Communism and Kim Jong Un, the word People's unfortunately has an unsavory connotation with despotic socialist and communist regimes that deprived people of basic human rights and enforced poverty and spying on each other.

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name
