How can museums change lives in a post-pandemic world and help society respond to the many challenges it faces?
In the past year museums proved that they can be responsive, creative and resourceful. We look at how we can build on what we have learned to emerge stronger and more relevant.
We explore how can we work effectively with communities hit hard by economic hardship and social upheaval during the pandemic. We discuss what we can do to improve people’s health and wellbeing, and give them hope and confidence in the future.
We examine the role we can play in tackling the urgent issues of our day, including the climate crisis, racism and discrimination.
We discuss how we can galvanise our collections and the expertise and passion of those who work with and for museums to engage audiences in new and exciting ways, including the transformational impact of digital technology.
