    • 1. Iain Watson, Director, Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums @iainawatson
    • 2. Old museum/new museum • Museums are provided on behalf of their audiences and audiences are expected to accept what is provided • Audiences are active participants and not passive consumers of information; they are involved in shaping their museum • In the entrepreneurial museum they are also involved in its success and resilience Deutsches Auswandererhaus, Bremerhaven
    • 3. Before the Crash • Steady increase in public finances and grants (HLF/ACE/Renaissance) • Sector growth – millennium developments etc. • Greater emphasis on social model – engagement Guggenheim Abu Dhabi
    • 4. Museums Association Cuts Survey 2012 31% of respondents experienced a budget cut of more than 10% in the past year alone. 22% of respondents have reduced access to sites by closing whole or parts of sites, permanently or temporarily. More than a third of museums who responded to our 2011 and 2012 surveys had experienced a cut of over 35% over the two years, leading to reduced staff and reduced public services. By 2016 national museums in England may have had their funding from government cut by almost 30%. This decline in the UK’s world-class museums coincides with increasing demand for museums 52% of the UK population visited a museum in 2012/23 - a significant increase from 42% in 2005/06. UK museum closures since 2005 http://www.museumsassociation.org/campaigns/funding-cuts/19062013-museum-closuresmap
    • 5. What has changed • Rapidly declining public funding, and increased competition for lottery funding • Government focus on Philanthropy • Funding focussed more on sustainability of organisations • Need to find new ways of plugging the funding gap to deliver mission
    • 6. Museums value "at any point of time in a country's history, whether the public or private sector is larger or smaller, we want to feel that it is a mark of good citizenship, both locally and centrally, to contribute to maintaining our museums, our galleries, our theatres - all those things that give that added dimension to our lives." Jennie Lee 'Government and the Arts', Museums Journal 1965 •Intrinsic value •Social value •Educational value •Economic value
    • 7. Virtuous circle Mission Mission can be delivered Museums are more resilient Engage users Users contribute
    • 8. I’ve preached for years that “nonprofit is a tax status, not a business philosophy.” http://futureofmuseums.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/challenging-assumptionswho-says.html
