A Relevant Museum: Innovative Strategies of Grand Change

In 2012 an unprecedented grant program “Dynamic Museum” was launched in Ukraine encouraging local museums to “dream” on their future and start transforming themselves in experimental and innovative ways. Two museums won the grants and currently actively work over transition from post- Soviet model towards a new one – open, proactive, creative, attractive, innovative, focused on visitors, engaging and influential. Challenges, approaches, hopes, lessons and first results on the road of change for the grantee will be showcased.
