Taking the Museum Outside Museum Walls: Disrupting Norms to Drive Impact

Disrupting norms is not easy. The most game-changing innovations are those that have not been in the game before. They are innovations that disrupt long-standing norms and beliefs as a way to drive business and impact. But disruption takes forward thinking, a great deal of convincing, and the ability to create value in novel ways.

Sam Aquillano, co-founder of Design Museum Boston, and Marcus Johnson-Smith, Director of Sneaker Museum and co-founder of Kush-Groove Clothing Company, have themselves disrupted the traditional museum experience by both rethinking what we curate as museum exhibits and reimagining museums as more than buildings that we visit. Together, they will share their insights into how entrepreneurs can successfully disrupt value chains in order to create innovative business models and new forms of social and cultural impact.
