Since 2013 We Are Museums has been building a global museum community of change-makers and innovators. We Are Museums identifies and cultivates emerging models of museums that react and reply to today’s people’s needs and ecosystems. It fosters skills sharing and capacity building to stimulate social, technological and environmental innovation in museums and society, to stay relevant at a local level within a global scale.
In 2020, We Are Museums celebrated an eight-year-long journey going from an annual conference highlighting international best practices and creating a strong community of like-minded museum professionals worldwide. We Are Museums has transformed into a movement founded on the ethos “social and technological innovations can empower museums to become good for people and the planet” and composed of museum practitioners, museum policymakers, startups and companies, artists and designers, researchers and students. In March 2020, We Are Museums founded the online community of We Are Museums and found its permanent physicality.
