Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, many museums struggled to think and plan strategically. Since the crisis we have seen a disruption of pre-existing plans and increased attention paid to previously under-prioritized areas, most notably in the realm of digital engagement. This workshop will help museum professionals contemplate and create their own plausible, possible, and probable ‘museum of the future’ narratives and potential actions.
Led by the ‘One by One’ research team, the workshop will demonstrate how, in a time of crisis, museums might identify the drivers, uncertainties, trends, cycles, and the multiple choices for their potential future so as to plan the best next actions to aid their growth and development. By undertaking an exercise in scenario planning, we can begin to learn from the past in order to better inform the present and plan for a more resilient future.
Registration is now closed.
