Museums and Creativity

Creativity and innovation are fundamental dimensions of human activity and essential to economic prosperity. Museums nurture creativity and innovation; they form a collective memory and create a sense of direction, and they act as a space for reflection on the present and a source of inspiration for new creative and innovative concepts.

There is a growing interest in the role of 'cultural' and 'creative' activity in the economy in the last years. Museums have proven and continue to prove their contribution to the intangible and tangible benefits for society in this regard.
