Can civic museums become catalysts for social change?

Civic museums are the local institutions dotted in cities, towns and villages across the country that focus on the relationship between their place and its people. Without the global prestige of national museums or specialist collections, for many they may evoke memories of rainy school holidays, or beautiful but dilapidated buildings which councils and volunteers struggle to maintain and keep open. However, these institutions house a wealth of knowledge and potential related to the history of their places and local people, across hundreds of communities.
