Museum of Happiness
Fellows | United Kingdom | Community Link

Four years ago, Shamash co-founded the world’s first Museum of Happiness. Two years ago, one of his events went viral and almost 10,000 visitors over 3 days came to a pop-up event in East London. Since then, he has opened a physical space called Museum of Happiness in the UK’s largest homeless hostel. The Museum has had thousands of visitors since then, and has trained Museum teachers the skills to spread happiness in their area. Shamash believes happiness is a skill you can learn, and aims to spread those skills worldwide. Shamash is author of five books, including Mindfulness for Dummies.
