Everyone means Everyone


Michael Peter EDSON, Associate Director/Head of Digital, UN Live Museum for Humanity, Denmark


This talk incorporates specific examples, research, and the work of leading cultural thinkers in a unique framework to make a powerful case for change

Where does culture happen? Who gets to participate, benefit, and contribute? And where do we learn the habits and responsibilities of citizenship?

This talk is a call to action that challenges cultural institutions to think and work at a global scale. New digital practices such as those found on the open, social, participatory web can reach vast audiences and have a profound effect on people’s lives, but many cultural institutions struggle to understand and utilize these techniques. As a result, many institutions are underperforming on their missions and underserving the public precisely at a time when society needs these institutions to be as effective and successful as possible. This talk incorporates specific examples, research, and the work of leading cultural thinkers in a unique framework to make a powerful case for change.
