It is dependent on innovation, because this is what essentially drives humanity forward, both in well-being and in economic growth. For museums, innovation is the key to enable responsible change.

Demystifying innovation and its challenges in the cultural sector. The methods, tools, canvases and definitions any innovative institution needs to succeed.
Innovation can and must be diverse. Therefore, there are many ways to start your innovation journey, where many areas can and must be addressed. However, don’t start with an all-encompassing innovation program. We recommend prioritizing and starting with a focused initiative that targets the areas you wish to improve on and delivers tangible added value for your organization, visitors, and community.
We have defined these main areas as Exhibition, Engagement, Service, and Organisation into which the different functional activities of museums fall. This structure helps to identify domains, and provides a clear structure to specify goals, a foundation for measurement and the use of innovation data.
Take the first steps and learn from our experts how to activate your innovation process in an unconstrained way.
