The Museum Innovation Forum 2019 under the theme "Building more Equitable, Relevant and Impactful Museums" will gather at the New Orleans Jazz Museum on May 18th, 2019 to discuss innovative approaches that museums can adopt to honour their civic responsibilities. This Forum plans to explore the role of contemporary museums in society. It assumes that the role of contemporary museums go beyond the basic functions of collecting, exhibiting and interpreting cultural heritage. Looking both internally (within the museum) and externally, The Museum Innovation Forum will discuss digital, social and business model innovations from the museum sector and beyond which can help museums be more effective agents for social change.
The Forum invites scholars, experts and practitioners to submit proposals that challenge current assumptions and provoke new thinking in the museum discourse.
Online presentation through video conferencing is available to those who cannot attend in-person.
