Museums as Social Agents

Museums can change people's lives. They contribute to cohesive communities and reflect the history and identity of all citizens. In turn, museums live and develop by the skills and the creativity of their public and they must show their value to society.

One of the major tasks of museums is the development of their audiences, be it the reaching out for new groups underrepresented in museums or the creative engagement with visitors in and outside the museum.
