WORKSHOP
Museums and Recovery: Empathy, Interaction and Co-creation in a time of profound change
with Dr Tom Fleming, Director, Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy | Expert on Creative Economy, Cultural and Arts Policy (UK)

Museums have always been vital hubs for engagement, education and inspiration. The Covid-19 crisis has brought into focus the ways museums give meaning and enhance our wellbeing, as well as how they anchor communities and contribute to inclusive growth. As we hopefully emerge from the crisis, museums will help us to rebuild trust, re-engage with our communities, and shape fresh perspectives in terms of what we value and how we live our lives. This will be a sensitive and challenging process, where museums will need to show empathy, to listen and learn. But it can also be a process of optimism, an opportunity to create a new type of museum which can help us to rebuild. This workshop will explore how museums are playing a role in recovery and explore new pathways for engagement, partnership and strategic development. It will draw on participants’ experiences of challenges and new opportunities.

The museum field in the U.S. and around the world is facing a time of unparalleled challenge with the confluence of crises created by the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic fall-out. At the same time, museums are contending with both the implications and the opportunities afforded by the national and even international reckoning for racial justice. Museums will emerge from the immediate circumstances needing new approaches, tools, and resources to reimagine and plan for a future within a dramatically different social, cultural, and even physical landscape.
