Museum Social Impact Summit 2024


Museum Social Impact Summit 2024 – MuseumNext


Museums, once seen primarily as repositories of history, art and science have evolved into dynamic hubs for social impact and change. They are no longer content with simply showcasing the past; instead, they are actively shaping the future by engaging with the most pressing issues of our time.
