#Museums respond to Ferguson – Things must change.

In December 2014, a group of museum bloggers in the States called for museums to address contemporary issues in the light of events in Ferguson and New York. The aim is to encourage a movement towards greater cultural and racial understanding and  better communication which needs to be supported by the culture and education sector. Museums are central to culture and education, so what should the museum’s role be in addressing difficult contemporary issues?

In these blogs and through a joint Twitter event following #museumsrespondtoferguson, many museums joined the debate, shared ideas and resources. In order to keep the pace with 21st century issues, museums  as education providers must join such debates if they want to have an impact and change lives.
