Cultural institutions can play a key role in the current social transformation. They can be places of collective self-assurance, socio-political discourse and can cultivate a common sense of possibility. If they want to be agents of change, sources of inspiration and navigators into a new world, they have to re-locate themselves. Because "if we really acknowledge the crisis we are in, then we can no longer do things the way we have been doing them – in fact, we can no longer do them at all." (PJ Sabbagha).
