Three speakers from Denmark at We Are Museums conference
We Are Museums 2019 in Katowice
What is role of museums today and tomorrow? How to activate the social, environmental and innovative potential of museums so that they provide future societies with the contents and frameworks necessary for their proper development?
For 3 days, We Are Museums will create a pop-up ecosystem that brings together the most forward-thinking museum practitioners, entrepreneurs, startups, activists, researchers, artists and culture game-changers from all around the world. Through series of inspirational speeches, fruitful discussions and hands-on workshops they will reflect on the future of museums and urgent crises of the Anthropocene.
