Launched in 2013, We Are Museums is a France-based NGO
We Are Museums campaigns for a new understanding of culture as society's mentor.
The 18th Enlightenment century advocated reason as a source of knowledge with a call for personal freedom, separating out church and state. Leaping forward to the age of the Anthropocene, we are again looking for new sources of knowledge, inspiration and leadership.

We aspire to shape the future by empowering a global museum community of changemakers to spearhead innovation and develop social purpose projects. We share a responsibility for the future of the communities we work in, as well as for the planet. We believe in museums as trusted institutions with a clearly-defined purpose, becoming transformative tools and significant civic resources.
We Are Museums is a community of practices that supports new ideas through resources, original research and collaborative networks.
We Are Museums' social innovation approach is to empower and enable leadership capacity for museums and their local communities via network and peer to peer learning and futures visioning. Based on community deep listening and collective intelligence, we transform museums' needs into innovative formats to solve, together, the challenges of today's and tomorrow's museums. We believe a diversity of local actions serving a global agenda provides the perfect conditions to foster systemic change.
We Are Museums is a series of experiences and events with the power to set ideas in motion and influence change.
For museums and with museums, we curate and organise international transformation programmes and events. What we do is always at the thresholds of museums, innovation and social purpose projects, gathering both inspiring and very hands-on examples.

Our events and innovative formats spark global conversations, strengthens friendships and inspires cultural courage.

At the core of our culture, we work on a collaborative and benevolent basis, having a no-show off policy and encouraging togetherness, openness and uprightness, towards a sustainable and workable future.
Gathering people is one of the most beautiful memory you can create, but it can also have one of the heaviest carbon footprint.
Making a gathering of 250 people environmentally responsible is far from an easy task, but we have done everything we can to minimize our carbon footprint as much as possible. On top of partnering with the Museum Slaskie which is the only polish museum that received the Green Key Environmental Certificate, turning WAM green was a story of details.
