Building Cultural Audiences
NEW WAYS TO ATTRACT & ENGAGE VISITORS
The long-term success of any museum depends on its ability to effectively attract and engage its visitors. Today, museum leaders are looking for strategies to better reach new audiences and to address changes in the leisure preferences of existing audiences. Finding strategies that work is no easy matter. This online feature will share with you the best resources from AAM and the Wallace Foundation as well as new content from contributors around the field as we seek proven approaches for building cultural audiences.
A World of Connections
TELLING THE STORY
In our globally connected world, museums are having an international impact. While AAM’s main audiences are located in North America, we have the privilege of helping to establish some amazing global partnerships too. It’s incredible to hear about the work AAM museums are doing to build vibrant global connections. These stories will show you just some of the ways that global perspectives can inspire you to think differently about how connected our world is today and how global thinking can inform your museum’s work with local audiences as well.
