Museum as Community Space

In recent years, as museums grapple with their changing place in society and engaging specific audiences has become increasingly important. What does it look like for museums to engage their community not just as consumers, but as collaborators? What practices are key to success? Let’s aim our spotlight on case studies from the New Museum, where working in collaboration with our community has led to stronger and more meaningful programs. By creating dynamic ecosystems within our community instead of closed-loop systems we can build more lasting and rewarding relationships.
