What is the Future of Museum Storytelling?
In November 2019 MuseumNext returns to the United States with a conference about the future of museum storytelling. We’re now looking for speakers to share their ideas and experiences at this event in New York.
Storytelling is as much a part of museums as their collections, but how is the way that we share stories changing? How can museums use stories to invoke wonder and curiosity? How can stories help us to have a deeper understanding of the past, present or future? And how do we create opportunities for our audiences to share their stories?
If you have something to say about the Future of Museum Storytelling we’d like to hear from you. Our call for speakers ends on 15th May 2019. You can submit your proposal here.
MuseumNext New York will take place on November 7 – 8 2019. It will bring together 200 senior museum professionals for two days of inspiration, innovation and conversation.
We are currently encouraging those interested in attending the conference to pre-register here.
We’re excited to announce our first keynote speaker, Seth Godin.
Seth is the bestselling author of 19 books that have been bestsellers around the world and have been translated into more than 35 languages.
He writes about the post-industrial revolution, the way ideas spread, marketing, quitting, leadership and most of all, changing everything. You might be familiar with his books Linchpin, Tribes, The Dip and Purple Cow.
MuseumNext founder Jim Richardson said, ‘We’re excited to have one of the world’s most creative thinkers share his views on the future of museum storytelling. This will not be museums as usual and you don’t want to miss it.’
