We Are Museums – reportage from the event
With responsive and impactful new roles opening up for museums in society, We Are Museums 2019 aims to align museums as places of inclusive growth and sustainable development, in which their social and environmental impact are the primary metrics.
Taking the first step in this transformation, we’re placing the necessity of connecting with our local communities at the heart of this year’s programme, to foster the idea of museums as part of sustainable, benevolent communities. When a museum reaches out to its community, it becomes a cherished urban feature and a social hub. And when a museum opens itself to its neighbours’ needs and becomes a valued service provider we call this MuseumHood – where neighbourhood and brotherhood come together. This year Muzeum Śląskie in Katowice hosted the international conference We Are Museums on 27-29.05.2019.
