The Museum Innovation Forum: Building More Equitable, Relevant and Impactful Museums

Now, more than ever, museums are critically reflecting upon their practices and striving to adopt innovative approaches to their civic responsibilities. Whether the innovation is a new or enhanced technology, business model or service, museums are becoming more socially, culturally, environmentally and politically aware of their surroundings. From the devastating environmental crises to human rights abuses, violence, as well as racial and economic inequities, museums as civic institutions have a moral duty to take actions to make the world a better place.

The Forum brings scholars, experts and practitioners to discuss the contemporary role of museums as agents for social change with the intention to challenge current assumptions and provoke new thinking in the museum discourse.
