Museums and Social Responsibility “CALL FOR PAPERS” Museums and Social Responsibility “CALL FOR PAPERS”

Museums in the Middle East Journal is an annual publication issued by Sharjah Museums Authority. The second issue of this journal covers the theme of Museums and Social Responsibility, and is expected to be published in December 2019.
In the constant demands of social and economic transformations locally and globally,  museums missions, roles and social responsibility changes to adapt better to the modes of engagement with communities through more effective communication and social responsibility programs..

In this process, there is a constant need for museums and programmes to demonstrate impact and value within their local communities in order to attract further funding and ongoing support, and this is the topic for the upcoming journal in which we invite submissions highlighting projects, initiatives and programmes that relate to social responsibility.

The following are some examples:
1. Community outreach targeting marginalized groups in society.
2. Raising awareness of community concerns in health, environment and/or other social concerns or causes.
3. Advocate the social benefits of museums in areas such as mental health and social well-being.
