Rising to the Challenge: Museums in the 'Age of Participation'
We are witnessing a complete renovation of our cultural infrastructure. Those 'bricks and mortar' culture houses, citadels of experience, towers of inspiration, that for so long have stood steadfast as symbols of cultural continuity and comfort, while the streets around them have whizzed and clattered to multiple disruptive transformation, are being turned inside out... this wholesale renovation is born out of an urgent requirement to change or die, and it is just beginning.
The Alberta Museums Association was pleased to have Graham Black, Professor of Museum Management and Interpretation, Nottingham Trent University, as the keynote speaker at the AMA Conference 2014: Accelerating Museum Impact. Black delivered an exciting presentation that was not only thought-provoking, but inspirational and relatable.
