Museums’ success depends in large part on the strength of their missions. But what if members and visitors at your institution don’t understand what you do— or don’t (yet) care? In this session, you’ll see how the Fuller Museum of Craft and the Harvard Museum of Natural History, two wildly different institutions with wildly different missions, successfully tackled the challenge of creating mission-based messages to drive attendance, membership, and giving. Leave with a checklist for how to put your mission into motion at your institution.

Co-chairs: Tamsen McMahon, Director of Digital and Strategic Initiatives; Sametz Blackstone Associates, MA; Brandon Walsh, Manager, Strategy, Sametz Blackstone Associates, MA

Presented at the New England Museum Association's 2009 Annual Conference.

    • 77. Fuller Craft Museum, New England’s only museum of contemporary craft, is dedicated to the objects, ideas, and insight that inspire both patrons and artiststo explore life through the art of contemporary craft. Craft is an art discipline that is both intriguing and accessible. Its roots reside in the creation of functional objects, but today, craft reflects the inspired ideas of artists who work primarily with their hands in materials that are tactile and familiar. Fuller Craft offers a collection, exhibitions, demonstrations, workshops, and special events where you can literally touch the materials and objects. Fuller Craft Museum is the most exciting place to bein the world of contemporary craft. Let the art touch you. Join us.
