Report: NEMO Annual Conference 2016. Let’s make museums great again!

This year’s Network of European Museum Organisations (NEMO) conference took place November 10 – 12 at Baden State Museum in Karlsruhe, Germany. 160 Participants from 36 countries came together to exchange about promising approaches on „Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums”. Only a few of them dealt with new funding opportunities in the first place. Instead, the conference opened new perspectives on measurement, cooperation and communication as premisses for a better and long-term financial coverage.

Call to participate: The Placeholder project on financial tactics for cultural managers

"The Placeholder" is a year-long, Europe-wide review of innovative, plug-in financial tactics that many cultural organisations develop in order to stretch their resources. The project is funded by Tandem Europe and was initiated by two small cultural organisations in different parts of the Europe that both have felt the pressure of dwindling funds, and realised that there is need for immediate practical skillshare between organisations in similar situations. "The Placeholder" is interested in non-institutional, unusual, informal methods from users' point of view, and as a peer-to-peer outcome will compile an archive of the tested, annotated tactics that will be accessible to all. Deadline for participation is 31 May 2016.

“Opera – an account’s nightmare”

© Dan DeChiaro/ FlickrPeter Gelb is General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera, one of the world’s largest and most complex arts organizations. Since his inauguration in 2006, he launched a number of new ventures for the Met, capitalizing on new media, theatrical broadcast, and a higher rate of new productions per year. Focusing on new and younger audiences, he brought grand opera to an audience of millions and opened a new revenue stream. But the debts are still growing and as the Met is „the most lavish privately financed opera house in the world“, the opinion of the wealth and patronaging older opera lovers play an important role when it comes to management decisions. The „fight at the opera“, that began when Gelb decided to combine the financial and general management with that of the overall creative director, is described by James B. Stewart in The New Yorker. It is comparable to the recent discussions about Chris Dercon, museum curator and director of the Tate Gallery, about his appointment as the new director of the Berlin Volksbuehne theatre. James Abruzzo has looked at the critique and the skills needed to lead an arts institution.

Sponsorship is Dead! Long Lives Corporate Cultural Responsibility

How are companies earning trust through cultural engagement? Money for “publicity”: this over-simplistic marketing principle that underlies any sponsorship agreement is increasingly losing its attractiveness for corporate communications. Here’s the thing: today, entrepreneurial cultural engagement is less about image or about customer loyalty than it is about the central asset of trust. Hence, the idea of corporate cultural engagement has to be rethought. Business logicians of capital have to learn to think in culturally relevant terms and the artists have to see the economic externalities of their actions as a means of securing subsistence.

Museums management in times of financial crises

Constructing sustainable Visions for the Future. Conference in cooperation with ICOM Slovenia, the National Museum of Slovenia and Kulturagenda - Institute for Museums, Cultural Enterprises and Audiences
 
October 4 & 5, National Museum of Slovenia, Ljubljana
 
As the financial crisis deepens museums are even more at risk from further cuts in public funding. Thus we are convinced that museums need to learn and develop new ways of thinking and accommodate new aspects and perspectives to focus beyond anything other than survival.
