Welcome to the Blooloop 50
museum influencer list 2020

2020 has been a challenging year for museums. The impact of COVID-19 has been devastating, with around 90% of the world’s museums closing temporarily due to the pandemic. Most will suffer significant damage and experts suggest that up to 1 in 8 museums wordwide might not reopen. 

In launching our first Blooloop 50 Museum Influencer List, in association with global museum planning and design firm Gallagher & Associates, we shine a spotlight on 50 people whose innovation and creativity are helping museums through this uniquely challenging time.

As museums reopen, the visitor experience they deliver will be different. The pandemic has been an accelerator. New initiatives, technologies and innovations will shape the museum of tomorrow. And it is the people driving and enabling this change we celebrate with this list.

We are proud to support the launch of The Blooloop 50 Museum Influencer lst.

Today, the role of museums in society is as important and as complex as it’s ever been. Museum leaders are challenging and guiding our field to become more inclusive, accessible, relevant, and safe.

The influencers on this list are people who push us to evolve the shape of our field and inspire us to be more creative, more innovative, and more inclusive.
