    Future Perfect Museums

    Museums are often seen as our official historical record, the archive of our triumphs and defeats, but sometimes we (our institutions and ourselves) need to cause a little disruption. We need to ask questions about the stories we know; we need to challenge assumptions; we need to change our parameters. We need to change our rules. We want to encourage participants to think differently about their goals, communities, and narratives. All attendees will be prompted to consider what the future of museums looks like to them. This session is for you if you are asking: What is the value of thinking about the future? What do museums have to do with the future? How is it relevant to my work?

     

    Maggie Greyson of Futures Present is an internationally recognized, award-winning futurist and designer. She helps organizations and individuals imagine the future(s) to make better decisions today and tomorrow. Maggie is passionate about helping museums recognize their potential and helping the public become comfortable with complexity through futures work. She is on the Board of the Association of Professional Futurists, a book reviewer of "Cultivating Futures Thinking in Museums", and a member of FORMS Futures-Oriented Museums Synergies, a global network of museum directors and associates.
