: CODE | WORDS brings together leading museum thinkers and practitioners to explore emerging issues about the nature of museums in the light of the dramatic and ongoing impact of digital technologies. Originally an online dialogue, this series of conversations explores challenging questions about the identity of museums, their role in society, their responsibility to serve a global public, and their very nature in a digital age. The authors aim to inspire change, and to demonstrate the important relationship between emerging digital practices and museum theory. "A timely exploration of how to engage with digital technologies." Laurent Gaveau, Director, The Lab, Google Cultural Institute. "Exciting, important and wide-ranging." Sree Sreenivasan, Chief Digital Officer, Metropolitan Museum of Art. "Like the future, it is experimental, uncertain, and brilliant." Nina Simon, Executive Director, Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, author of The Participatory Museum.
