The interactive installation Bumper Ballet at Park Hilaria is a cooperation between the Koude Kermis by Dropstuff Media and Museum door de Stad (roaming museum) by Eindhoven Museum. Both initiatives aim to make cultural heritage more accessible to a wider public, with a new approach to unlocking history. Bumper Ballet is a small bumper-car track that initially feels like a ride as you are used to from the funfair, until the moment the computer takes over from the bumper cars. Museum door de Stad presents the theme 'our transport in present, past and future, initiated during Dutch Technology Week.
