TrendsWatch 2013 Town Hall

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Join the Alliance for an insider’s look at the Center for the Future of Museum’s latest research report, TrendsWatch 2013: Back to the Future.

The new edition of TrendsWatch focuses on key social, economic, technological and other trends shaping the future of museums—including an urban renaissance, changing patterns in philanthropy and a backlash against our always-on, never-off, hyper-connected world.


  • Elizabeth Merritt, founding director, Center for the Future of Museums, American Alliance of Museums, Washington, D.C.
  • Philip M. Katz, assistant director, research, American Alliance of Museums, Washington, D.C.

Participants in the one-hour, interactive Town Hall will join a conversation with Merritt, Katz and other guest experts. We encourage museums to register and participate in groups, sparking discussion within your own institution on the intriguing topics explored in TrendsWatch 2013. Catch up with last year’s edition of TrendsWatch.
