  • 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.
