Dear professionals from Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums, dear friends passionated by Culture, Art and Science,

We have all understood that consciousness, hopes, despairs, opinions and knowledge are now forged online and this phenomenon conditions the evolution of our hyper-connected and hyper-reactive planet. It is our representation of the world -Weltanschauung would have said Emmanuel Kant- which is prey to digital influences, for better or for worse. 
For some, opinion has taken the place of knowledge and scientific truths have become relative; hatred, cyber-bullying and disinformation abound; informational wars of influence are waged by States; we are disoriented, confused; we are leaving our young generations with a future in question mark, how can we blame them?
We need to make room for counter-narratives and we affirm that museums, libraries, art galleries, archives, artists and creators have a fundamental role to play in the deployment of inclusive, argumentative discourses that bring hope and a willingness to intervene in the world to contribute to its sustainability.
We are convinced that these actors, by extending their raison d'être on digital platforms, will contribute to what we must now call a societal struggle
This is why we are dedicating our ninth MuseumWeek to the theme of "Culture, Society and Innovation" and why we invite you to:
🌟 to participate in MuseumWeek 2022 (June 13-19) by preparing publications and events according to the week’s seven hashtags
🌟 to join our international social media newsroom as a volunteer. This is a unique experience that could benefit you personally, as well as your institution. See more information below.
Have a great week and stay safe.
Warm regards,
Benjamin BENITA,
President of Culture For Causes Network
