About the Theme
People and communities use narrative–stories built around core values–to understand the world and their place in it. As narratives become more inclusive and encompass a broader range of perspectives, museums are looking for ways to deliver these new stories to provide a narrative that represents as many voices as possible. Museums are working to change the narrative around their collections in order to fulfill their responsibility to better serve the public.
