The Mythologies of Museums

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In an era of radical introspection and desire for change, we need to understand our shared mythologies about museums, practical examples of how we can do things differently, and the ripple effect across the organization for our most basic decisions. This session uses a panel to discuss and interrogate these fundamental myths: Collections, Academic / Scholarly Purpose, Digital Will Save Us, Sources of Money, Programming, Question of Campus / Buildings, and Staffing. We can do things differently.
