This year’s theme, “Re:Making The Museum ,” taps into the current trend among cultural institutions to reexamine what they do and how the community is finding new and innovative ways to accomplish their goals. From reimagining online exhibitions to rethinking digitization practice to reevaluating interaction with audiences, there are numerous ways that museums are actively remaking themselves.
