Discussion Topics

The Museum in the World
Museums today exist far beyond their physical spaces and localities. In addition, the rapid proliferation of museums in Asia has brought a growing desire for international partnerships and collaborative exchange. This session will explore the potential for museums to look beyond their physical spaces for opportunities to create new experiences.

The Museum in the City
With prominent locations at the heart of cities, museums are well positioned to engage with audiences. But being at the center of urban life also presents great challenges. This panel will focus on the museum in situ, exploring the different ways in which museums today engage with and create a community.

Inside the Museum: Future Propositions
As many Asian countries become more focused on arts and culture, the most extensive museum construction of the next decade will take place in Asia. This discussion will tackle the pertinent issues of our time from the perspective of museum leaders in order to construct the ideal museum model.
