In Conversation Why Museums Matter

Hear Why Museums Matter

Following our sell out evening with Tristram Hunt (Director, V&A), Maria Balshaw (Director, Tate), Sonia Boyce (artist and academic) and Chris Stephens (Director, Holburne) we are pleased to be able to share a recording of the evening’s discussion which covered one of the key issues in the cultural sector today: the role of the museum. As museums redefine their place in society, and their financial positions become progressively more vulnerable, the question of why museums matter is all the more urgent and complex. This talk explored the significant and profound ways in which cultural engagement can enhance, shape and alter people’s lives.
