Future of Museums
In these times of tectonic change and uncertainty, museum professionals need to develop brave new skills in order to remain relevant. We need to be able to pause, reflect, and engage our imaginations in new and generative ways. This session explores tools, conditions, and approaches for tapping into creativity, and developing collaborative trust with colleagues and our communities. Based on their experiences creating museum “labs,” “salons,” and experimental projects with museum staff in the U.S. and internationally, panelists will present a range of models for igniting staff creativity, discovering new passions, and instigating generous collaborations. And participants will share their experiences with creative breakthroughs and events.
