NEMO Publication on Museums’ Positive Impact across Sectors

NEMO recently released a collection of the papers from its 26th European Museum Conference “Museums out of the Box! The Crossover impact of Museums”. The publication showcases the many spillover effects that museums create on other sectors.

Museums have the power to positively influence society, youth and social integration. They are also capable of shaping thriving cities as well as boosting creative industries and science. Museums play a key role in society as a whole as well as for cultural heritage in Europe. The publication covers:

  • MUZA: Community Curation as a Tool for Social Integration
  • Social Relevance of the Rijksmuseum: From Collection to Connection
  • Building New Connections between Museums and Society
  • The Hunt Museum as a Centre of Learning and Civic Life
  • Innovation Leadership in Museums
  • Science Engagement in Action

The conference took place from 15-18 November 2019 in the European Capital of Culture 2018 Valletta, Malta. Marie Briguglio Annemies Broekgarden Jill Cousins Sandro Debono Mikko Myllykoski Ragnar Siil Raivis Simansons Marina Tsekou and Henrik Zipsane have all contributed to the publication.
