Call for papers – MuseumNext 2016
New York City, November 14-15
Proposals due: 30 June 2016
MuseumNext is a global conference series on the future of museums, taking place in the world’s cultural capitals since 2009.
MuseumNext is a catalyst for innovation, transformation and collaboration in museums, galleries and heritage sites, with more than 800 individuals from 32 countries joining us in 2015.
Our next conference will take place in Tribeca, Manhattan on November 14 – 15 2016, and we are now inviting proposals on the theme of transformation. We are specifically interested in opinions, case studies and discussions on the following subjects:
Transforming Lives – How can museums have a positive social impact on the communities that they serve, changing lives, improving cities and acting as catalysts for change.
Transforming Practices – How is best practice evolving to better meet the needs of a rapidly changing world, we are interested in examples of innovative practice from across the museum.
Transforming Places – How are museums transforming their spaces to meet the needs of their audiences and how are they working with their audiences and external experts to achieve this.
If you feel that you have something to contribute on this theme, we invite you to make a proposal to speak at our conference in New York City. MuseumNext follows a fast paced format of twenty-minute presentations with the focus very much on practice rather than theory. Read more on Call: MuseumNext 2016…
