TrendsWatch: Building the Post-pandemic World is now free to download!
Welcome to TrendsWatch, CFM’s annual forecasting report. This year the report explores how museums can use the profound disruptions of the past three years as opportunities to create a better, more equitable, and resilient future. This year’s report was released earlier than ever before to AAM members and subscribers as the January/February issue of Museum magazine, and on the web via links (below). In March, a PDF version of the report was released for free download.
