The conservation, education and communication of tangible and intangible witnesses to cultural heritage has been facilitated by new technologies. At the same time, the role of museums has become more complex. In the past, museums were heralded as the sole guardians of memory, and the sole research and dissemination sites for the arts, heritage and culture. Today, in the 21st century, museums are confronted with cultural, social, economic and ecological issues requiring specific attitudes and knowledge. Faced with this great challenge, museums must increasingly rely on their creative and innovative abilities – including the development of a new way of analysing and promoting humanity’s heritage.
