This years 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 up new perspectives on measurement, cooperation and communication as premisses for a better and long-term financial coverage.

The Agenda company organised the Communicating the Museum conference on 12 - 15 July 2016 in Berlin, Germany. As is usual with these conferences, one of their main raison d'Ítre - reasons for existing - is the opportunity to inform yourself about the latest developments in a wide ranging of topics - in this case arts communications and fundraising and to network with like-minded professionals. As such, CTM was able to provide the over 200 participants and 50 speakers from all over the world with plenty of opportunities to do so.

The DMA is committed to knowing its museum visitors better and deepening their connection with the art displayed in its collections and special exhibitions. For over 10 years, the museum has conducted research using diverse evaluative tools that support the staff in their efforts to better understand the preferences, actions and curiosities of its audiences. Through this increased knowledge, museums gain valuable insight for nurturing relationships between people, art, and museums.

In many European countries, the arts, heritage and cultural sector is supported by or partially subsidized by government. However, due to the economic crisis and cuts in budget, the amount of funds for direct subsidies is decreasing. Starting from this assumption, the project Empowering Museum Professionals and Heritage Organizations Staff by cultural entrepreneurship training and research (EMPHOS) has the objective to develop entrepreneurial skills and attitude among cultural professionals.

Users come to Tates website with different motivations, knowledges of art, and have different preferences for browsing information online. At Tate, we have undertaken research to understand, analyse and map these users needs and expectations. We have then used this analysis to consider how we can develop more effective ways for users to find and consume our content about art, as well as enabling them to create their own experiences and meanings.
