Led by the Master of Arts in Museum Studies Program, Southern University at New Orleans, this Forum explores the role of contemporary museums in society. It assumes that the role of contemporary museums goes beyond the basic functions of collecting, exhibiting and interpreting cultural heritage. Looking both internally (within the museum) and externally, The Museum Innovation Forum will discuss digital, social and business model innovations from the museum sector and beyond which can help museums be more effective agents for social change.

The Forum invites scholars, experts and practitioners to submit proposals that challenge current assumptions and provoke new thinking in the museum discourse.
