Museums at Night training workshops: what would you like to learn?

Thank you to all the venues who helped to make Museums at Night 2011 the most successful yet.

352 venues staged 467 events, in 169 different towns and cities across the UK. More than 120,000 visitors attended an event, and the media coverage the campaign received was worth over £1.1 million pounds – an extraordinary result, based on direct funding of £95,000!

Check out the latest Culture24 e-newsletter, where we are asking venues to let us know who’d like a Museums at Night training workshop in their town.

Now – perhaps more than ever – is a moment for the museum sector to look outwards and see the opportunities for collaboration.

At a time when the sector’s governance is being re-shaped, the funding landscape re-formed and individual services and institutions restructured, the drive for joint ventures and partnership have become more relevant than ever. In particular it is co-operation with the wider arts sector and with the commercial world that seem to demand attention and offer exciting possibilities for everyone.

Alert to this, Culture24 have brought together professionals from across the creative industries to reflect upon and share their experience of working digitally with cultural sector partners. Through a series of roundtable discussions, this day-long meeting will explore some of the evolving models for online collaboration and discuss the existing and perceived barriers and divisions between different sectors and the public/private worlds.

Those in conversation will include:

Andrew Nairne: Executive Director, Arts, Arts Council England
Gill Johnson: Director, Broadcasting & Digital, Arts Council England
Honor Harger, Director Lighthouse
Kevin Bacon, Digital Development Officer, The Royal Pavilion and Museums, Brighton & Hove
Spencer Hyman, CEO & Founder, Artfinder
Andy Budd, Director of user experience, Clearleft
Laura Scott, Laura Scott: EMEA External Relations
Freya Murray, Senior Arts Executive, BSKYB
Alyssa Bonic, Arts Manager, BSKYB
Jane Finnis: Director Culture24

There will also be a special trip to Brighton’s wonderfully unique Royal Pavilion and Museums site.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
