This research aims to focus on the perceptions and opinions of young people in relation to museums, whether this alleged disinterest is really the result of a totally “hormonal” stage where you have your head in the clouds or if institutions do not know how to adapt to this type of audience, and are not offering the stimuli, language, and answers they seek. What is the middle term we need to understand us? Is it possible to reach a balance between us?

The permeability of the job market in relation to the newer generations has never been a matter of easy digestion, especially in the public sector, where unfortunately, and increasingly, young people's access to a public servant position is difficult and complex. And in museums too, which is a primary and alarming issue.

From the Associació de Museòlegs de Catalunya we want to expose this reality, and obviously some others, to the public eye. The “Assault on Museums” campaign aims to bring out the path of young people who are currently working in museums and to divulge how they achieved to do so.
