Community-based Approach to Museum Development in Asia and the Pacific for Culture and Sustainable Development

“Most tellingly, the papers show us many valuable achievements of being ‘community-based’; many questions are raised, not least of all being ‘what does it mean to be community-based’? From individuals up to the level of national government, the papers show a broad range of initiators who reveal that the scope is indeed wide in relation to the ‘by the community’, or ‘for the community’ question that is asked in trying to define ‘community-based’. One thing that is certain is that all the cases from the Asia Pacific presented here demonstrate commitment to and of the community which must be congratulated.” (p.11)
