Event: The New Rules of Engagement: Museums, Their Audiences and Their Artifacts
Date: Tuesday, July 28, 2020 4:30 pm
About:  Museums are all about stuff, right? Historical stuff, rare stuff, beautiful stuff, expensive stuff. Lots and lots of stuff. This is reflected in the most widely-accepted definition of a museum, which says it is “A nonprofit institution that acquires, conserves, researches, communicates, and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study, and enjoyment.”

In 2019, the International Council of Museums proposed a new (and contentious) definition. It describes museums as “democratizing, inclusive and polyphonic spaces for critical dialogue about the pasts and the futures,” as “participatory and transparent” and places that can “contribute to human dignity and social justice, global equality and planetary wellbeing.” This is, to say the least, a new way of thinking about what museums should be doing, and how they should do it.

In this presentation Hamilton’s Manager, Heritage Resource Management (and longtime curator, museum studies lecturer and award-winning author) John Summers will explore what this new vision means for Hamilton’s civic museumsRegistration: Click Here.
