The Center for the Future of Museums, the forecasting operation of American Alliance of Museums, has released their TrendsWatch for 2017. Every year, we look forward to this curated list of the most influential global movements. This annual list explores current social and technological trends and examines how they might play out for museums, while sharing examples of museums already embracing or addressing the topics.
Summer is the time of year to regroup, head to the water to enjoy some waves, and look out at the horizon to contemplate the second half of the year. Here at Cuseum we are doing the same, though we are diving into different waters in search of what the future will be like. So much is on our minds… What will rock the industry’s boat (for better or for worse)? What tools at our disposal will be our lifejackets?
