Through a programme of lectures, workshops and discussions the seminar Towards a Future Museum Glossary: A for Ability, T for Trust aims to help museums and their audiences speak about the museum, its duties and purpose in the future, and to better understand their respective roles and the basis of their interaction.
The starting point for the seminar is a desire to initiate a performance of a new vocabulary for the museum of the future, a vocabulary that adapts to the needs of both the institution and the general public.
