The next level of museums will be a bioinspired living system which is integrated into his environment and community.

We Are Museums and the Biomimicry Academy wants to think museums in a new way. Museums are no more archives for the past. The museum will become part of society and will provide knowledge from the past, ideas for the future and opinions for the present. It will be more like a building it will be a person to discuss with and to develop new ideas to act, react and evolve.

Museums are safe and livable places where transformation is the heartbeat of the provided experiences.

They are fabulous tools for people to understand, reflect, share and talk about a topic. Reactive cultural programmers can tell stories differently, transform a narrative so that it awakens minds, reach people and benefits communities.

Creating living spaces where everyone can feel free to learn, share, think or act is an essential milestone when it comes to building sustainable communities.

By facilitating new connections and productions and creating a unique network, new communities-based biodiversity is created. Tthe richness, a modern museum’s community, lies in its randomness. It could be composed of indigenous communities, activist groups and social movements, interest-based associations, researchers and innovators, civil society organisations, artists and creatives, startups and companies and transient visitors.
