Today on Your Call: What’s next for museums?


  On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Nina Simon, author of The Participatory Museum and creator of the blog, Museum 2.0.  Museums are a labor of love. They generally require subsidies and a good many simply don't serve much of the population. A building movement hopes to turn museums into relevant and participatory spaces.  How do we make our museums more dynamic, relevant, essential resources?  And what is the value of the traditional museum? Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here.  What's your favorite experience in a museum?  It’s Your Call, with Matt Martin, and You.

Guest:

Nina Simon, author of The Participatory Museum, creator of the blog, Museum 2.0, and executive

   director of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History
