The Keio Museum Commons designs and implements participatory exhibitions that invite various forms of participation from visitors and the communities surrounding the university, focusing on widening people’s engagement with the university’s collections. This research note analyses the modalities of participation in the March 2023 exhibition “Who Forms Archaeological Sites – in What Manner?”, referring to discussions on participations in museums, as well as issues around Citizen Science and Public Humanities in Japan. This paper then addresses how exhibitions visualising different modalities of participation can function as effective platforms for opening up participation in cultural and academic activities to a wider audience.
