Redefining the Indian Museum: An Online Panel Discussion
ICOM defines a museum as a non-profit, permanent institution in the service of society and its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment for the purposes of education, study and enjoyment.
So how can Indian museums expand the scope of this definition to make it culturally attractive to the community? What does an audience expect from its local museum? What can Indian museums do to help establish a museum-going culture in the country and make themselves financially sustainable?
