We Are Museums

the movement of museums good for people and for the planet, empowered by innovation.

On 26-29 May 2019, the We Are Museums community gathered in Poland for its annual meeting at the Muzeum Śląskie in Katowice.

We welcomed 250 professionals to share and work on the role of museums in today’s climate issues, how to create a Museumhood and become a neighbour, embody entrepreneurship and work with startups.

We Are Museums is a global community of changemakers at the thresholds of museums, innovation and social purpose projects.
