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 Anthropecene, 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 believe in museums as trusted institutions with a clearly-defined purpose, that are also transformative tools and significant civic resources.
We share a responsibility for the future of the communities we work in, as well as for the planet.
