Bridging the Gap: Strengthening Relationships with Communities

As the role of a museum evolves in the 21st century, it is imperative that museums remain attentive to the changing needs and demographics of their communities. Museums are increasingly expected to keep up with the latest digital technology to be relevant to a younger generation. And in a world of people increasingly on the move, some museums find themselves struggling to attract newcomers who do not have roots in the community or a stake in the success of their institutions.

Museums must learn to balance new initiatives with past practices in order to keep all generations engaged with our institutions. How do museums integrate new technologies and still maintain a high level of engagement within all age groups? What can museums do to increase collaborations with local communities and develop beneficial relationships? How do museums attract new visitors and donors while maintaining past relationships with prior stakeholders? Bridging these gaps effectively will be a strong factor in how well an institution can face the future. How are you and your museum finding ways to Bridge the Gap?
