The Future of Museums Dialogue Series
The world is rapidly changing around us, and it is questionable if the old frameworks for the development of programs and space programs for museums will still be relevant tomorrow. What would museums for the 21st century become if we were to we take this unprecedented time to explore new missions, visions, and (space) programs for existing and new institutions? Join us for an online series of live conversations as museum expert David van der Leer, Principal of DVDL DD, speaks with museum professionals from around the US and beyond.
In this week’s installment, Van der Leer will be joined in conversation by Scott Cooper, PhD, President and CEO of The Academy of Natural Sciences, Drexel University. Founded in 1812, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University is a leading Natural History Museum, located in Philadelphia, PA. This historic institution is dedicated to advancing research, education, and public engagement in biodiversity and environmental science.
