  9. 9. Dublin, 18–20 April 2016 #museumnext 10.00 Welcome 10.15 –11.45 PANEL: AAA. Attracting All Ages – Museums for Everyone Ready for Prime Time: Older Adults Make Their Mark at MoMA Francesca Rosenberg, Director of Community, Access and School Programs, The Museum of Modern Art MoMA has launched Prime Time, a multiyear research and development project which aims to increase the participation of older adults in the Museum’s programs and activities and to think more broadly about how museums and cultural institutions can contribute to a fulfilling ageing process—one defined by creativity, curiosity, connectedness and continued growth. This presentation will highlight relevant research findings as well as new program and partnership models and will invite audience members to examine their existing relationship with this part of the population and identify ways of tapping into the potential of this curious, learned, and dynamic group. Takeover Day–Why Giving Young People a Role in a Museum Matters Dea Birkett, Creative Director, Kids in Museums Takeover Day is the biggest ever, annual initiative with young people in museums. In November 2015, over 5000 young people took part in over 150 museums in England and Wales. They took over venues from small one-roomed galleries up to huge sites including Stonehenge, where they guided visitors around the Neolithic stones. They put on exhibitions, designed websites, ran social media, and delivered educational workshops for primary school children. ‘It was the best day of my museum career!’ said one staff member. The Mythical Millennial in Museums Susan Evans McClure, Director, Smithsonian Food History Programs, National Museum of American History “We have to get more millennials!” –Who hasn’t heard that rallying cry at museum board meetings, strategic planning sessions, and department check-ins over the past 5 years? Few museums are articulating why this audience is important and how to reach them effectively, instead choosing to focus on what they think will get millennials through the door. From adding technology to movie nights to DJ and drinks nights at the museum, institutions are all too often following an, “If you build it (with tech and booze), they will come,” mentality. The way to the hearts and minds of millennials at the National Museum of American History is to make personal connections with content that forge lasting relationships with the institution. This model can be extended to museums around the world as they develop strategies to connect with new and growing audiences. But don’t forget the booze. Sarah Glennie, Director, Irish Museum of Modern Art will chair this panel Tuesday 19 April
  10. 10. 11.45 –12.30 KEYNOTE: Burning Man: Building Inclusive, Collaborative, Creative Culture Marian Goodell, CEO, Burning Man Marian Goodell has been involved with Burning Man since 1995 and is one of six founders of the Burning Man organization, which in addition to its year-round programmes, produces the annual event in Nevada’s Black Rock City that becomes home to more than 70,000 ‘Burners’ for eight days each year. Burning Man, which started out as an informal and spontaneous gathering on a San Francisco beach in 1986, has grown into a global cultural movement fuelled by inclusion, creative self- expression and generous collaboration. As the non-profit Burning Man Project’s CEO, Marian oversees and leads the organization’s $30+ million dollar budget, 80 year-round employees, and thousands of volunteers. She helped to establish and grow the Global Network, now boasting more than 265 official ambassadors in 125 locations and more than 65 official Burning Man events on six continents annually, and is leading the effort to inspire and nurture Burning Man culture across the globe. At MuseumNext, Marian will share her experiences and hard-earned insights about generating and cultivating creative culture gained from two decades of participating in and providing leadership to this growing movement. Matt Caines, Editor, Guardian Culture Professional Network will chat to Marian. 12.30 –1.30 LUNCH 13.30 –15.00 PANEL: Museums and Communities Prototyping Places for People Deborah Cullinan, CEO, Yerba Buena Centre for the Arts Yerba Buena Center for the Arts’ “prototyping places for people” initiative addresses the growing issues of disconnection and lack of empathy among the diverse people of San Francisco. In the midst of rapid change, the city’s local media headlines are dominated by battles over public and private space, and questions of whom the city, or any given neighbourhood, really belongs to. Traditional urban planning processes have had limited, if any, community input. But YBCA believes that citizens deserve a voice in the transformation unfolding in their streets. Through an unprecedented partnership with the San Francisco Planning Department, YBCA has launched an open source model that puts the people of the city at the centre of how things grow and shift. They began on Market Street; a major thoroughfare that spans several neighbourhoods in the midst of dramatic change. The Market Street Prototyping Festival asked citizens to submit their ideas for making Market Street a more welcoming, inspiring destination for the diverse people that live and work along it’s path. An open call yielded hundreds of submissions, and 50 ideas were selected to become temporary design installations (“prototypes”). Over three days in April, almost one million people visited these installations along Market Street, and it brought connectivity, empathy and inspiration to the city’s streets. This was the first iteration of what will become an annual endeavour, leading up to and beyond the planned redesign of Market Street in 2018. Over the next two years, YBCA will incubate 100 open-sourced ideas for activating public space, while tackling big questions like: can citizen- driven change achieve equity? Moving forward, the “prototyping places for people” work will grow in new directions and neighbourhoods based on learnings.
  11. 11. Dublin, 18–20 April 2016 #museumnext Tate for All? The Development of the Social Model Synthia Griffin, Curator, Regeneration and Community Partnerships, Tate Modern Reflecting on Tate Modern’s development from power station to art gallery and the process of cultural led regeneration, Synthia Griffin will talk about the gallery’s role as a local museum and present a strategy for inclusive community engagement. Focusing on the development of Tate Modern’s unique ‘Social Model’ which aims to bring together local diverse communities and audiences to engage with the ongoing evolution of the Museum and its collection, she will share experience of delivering a programme of socially engaged art projects and urban interventions both within and outside of the museum context. Synthia will also talk about a collaborative project that involves writing songs about Tate Modern with a variety of community groups and having them performed by Choirs from all over London as part of the opening project for Tate Modern planned for June 2016. Drawing together and sharing different models of working that offer engaging propositions for communities to collaborate she will talk about Tate’s role initiating steering groups, liaison groups and active participation models moving beyond the traditional offer of workshops to more inspiring longer term democratic models. Get Connected: Citizenship in the Capital Dr Sarah Rusholme, Wellington Museums Trust Visiting New Zealand’s capital city is an opportunity for school students to get the feel of places like the Parliament buildings, Government House, Supreme Court, Reserve Bank and the National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. It’s an opportunity to deepen their thinking about what it means to be a New Zealander and to explore their ideas of nationhood, identity and citizenship. In 2014, research by Wellington Museums Trust identified that many regional students had never travelled to the heart of the capital. Lack of communication, connectivity of learning experiences, and the cost of travel were all barriers to accessing these learning experiences. In response, thirteen of Wellington’s nationally- significant institutions formed a consortium with support from the City Council. Led by Wellington Museums Trust, this group initiated joint communication, improved online assets for teachers planning a trip, and produced ChangeAgents: a resource that supports teachers to take a concept-led approach to teaching about citizenship. This talk explores the difference this multi- stakeholder partnership approach has made to the consortium, students, teachers and the city–and how lessons learned along the way are shaping the second year of this innovative project. Lynn Scarff, Director, Science Gallery Dublin, will chair this panel
  12. 12. 15.00 –15.30 PRESENTATION: What is the Tomorrow We Are Talking About? Alexandre Fernandes, Audience Development Director Museu do Amanhã (Museum of Tomorrow) Luiz Alberto Oliveira, Curator, Museu do Amanhã (Museum of Tomorrow) The Museum of Tomorrow wants to invite society to think about the impact of the choices we, as people, citizens and members of humankind, are making today and how these choices will lead to different possible tomorrows. The aim of this presentation is to introduce how the Museum of Tomorrow presents its inventory of possibilities according to the guidelines of sustainability and coexistence. In addition, they will also discuss how the Museum of Tomorrow, by recognising the region’s historical and cultural values, is trying to legitimate itself as an important agent of transformation and empower the local community. 15.30 –16.00 BREAK 16.00 –17.00 PANEL: Valuing People Within Museums Inside Out, How Staff Engagement Creates Museum Success Eleanor Appleby, Staff Engagement and Communications Consultant, Jane Wentworth Associates What’s your biggest expense but also your biggest asset? Staff. So how are you going to get the best out of them, especially when budgets are tight? This presentation will demonstrate how focusing on staff engagement is crucial to museum success – how it is key to creating a compelling and coherent visitor experience and how getting it right can significantly impact the bottom line with increased visitors, income and reputation, as well as improved staff happiness and motivation. Hear what is meant by staff engagement, the core principles that underpin it, and the simple but effective actions that can be taken to make it work in museums – no matter how large or small. Find out what staff need to hear and how they need to hear it, the most effective internal communication techniques, the vital but often overlooked role of staff touch-points, and the single most important thing leaders can do to get staff believing in them.
  13. 13. Dublin, 18–20 April 2016 #museumnext Expanding Museum People Through Social Media Practice Monica O. Montgomery, Co Founder, Museum Hue and Action Director, LatimerNow Independent collectives of self directed museum workers are forming communities of practice outside of associations and conference halls. These self directed peer groups band together online as cohorts journeying through social media platforms, internet back channels and web based technologies to glean insights on topics as vast as labour, equity, audience evaluations and work life balance. Their actions are transforming the way professional development is done, calling out privilege and implicit bias and fuelling personal growth. Many emerging museum professionals, students, cultural producers, teaching artists and other arts and culture careerists are involved in weaving a vast network that consumes and creates these digital experiences and brave spaces as routine practice. The outcomes of this social media revolution is an adaptive, well informed cohort of learners strengthened by input and ideas. Groups like Museum Workers Speak are shifting policy in AAM and generating solutions by adding unique and marginalized voices to the conversation. The informal scholarship generated in this online crowdsourced approach is advancing tough but necessary issues in the sector, propelling a ripple effect for museum workers to adapt pivot and respond in an iterative digital format, while critically dissecting querying, engaging and archiving their journey. 17.00 –17.15 Thank You and Wrap Up for Day 2 19.00 –22.00 Science Gallery Dublin After Dark Experience the collision of art and science at Science Gallery Dublin in an after-dark evening curated especially for MuseumNext delegates. The venue’s latest exhibition, FIELD TEST: RADICAL ADVENTURES IN THE FUTURE OF FARMING will be in full swing on the night offering attendees the chance to engage with mediators and explore the questions that the exhibition poses including: Will we make hay while the sun shines or when the sensors say? Will farms change into factories, food forests or even theme parks? Will we embrace in-vitro meat, drone tractors, and robotic ranchers or are we willing to pay more for slow, local and hand-picked? Get to know your colleagues better while exploring some of the highlights the gallery has to offer. Take part in engrossing experiments, hands-on workshops, interactive demonstrations and games as the gallery feature some of their greatest hits from the eight years that they have been open. Amongst these, visitors will taste and try crops curated by artists and scientists, explore a digital farm that fits in their bedroom, and dream up the farms of the future. In the theatre, conference attendees are invited to take inspiration from a previous Science Gallery Dublin exhibition, FAIL BETTER, and participate in a special series of Pecha Kucha talks on failure. Complimentary drinks and canapés will be available along with a paid bar and substantial menu from the café’s kitchen. The house DJ will add to the ambiance throughout the night and there will be playful opportunities for networking and finding out more about your fellow conference attendees.
  14. 14. 10.15 –11.30 In Conversation with David Fleming David Fleming, Director, National Museums Liverpool David Fleming has a long, diverse and highly successful career in museums and is one of the world’s leading thinkers and activists on museum management and leadership, city history museums, social inclusion, human rights, politics, ethics and emotion.

David has been responsible for the creation of two new museums in Liverpool, the Museum of Liverpool and the International Slavery Museum. David is President of the UK Museums Association and former Chairman of the MA’s Ethics Committee. He has served on several Government committees and task forces.

Jasper Visser, Senior Partner, Vissch+Stam will chat to David Fleming. 11.30 –12.15 Building the Global Science Gallery Network Dr. Michael John Gorman, CEO Science Gallery International From its beginnings of Science Gallery in a forgotten corner of Trinity College Dublin to a burgeoning global Network with eight galleries planned by 2020, Dr. Michael John Gorman has shaped and scaled the Science Gallery concept as Founding Director of Science Gallery Dublin and now CEO of Science Gallery International. With the Dublin gallery now welcoming more than 400,000 people every year and galleries already planned for London, Bengaluru and Melbourne, the Global Science Gallery Network is poised to connect the best minds in some of the world’s most exciting cities. But can a Network embody the agility, creativity and connectivity of the original gallery whilst growing beyond the original space? During this keynote, Michael John Gorman will discuss the challenges and opportunities of going global, and what it will mean for Science Gallery. Wednesday 20 April
  15. 15. Dublin, 18–20 April 2016 #museumnext 12.15 –13.15 LUNCH 13.15 –14.45 Future Finance Revenue and Relevance – Making Money Without Selling Out Jim Broughton, Head of International Engagement, The Natural History Museum Jim will talk about the decisions museums must make in order to identify new areas for expanding their revenue-generating activities, without compromising either credibility or core purpose. He will show how the Natural History Museum has developed a strategic approach to evaluating and cultivating opportunities in order to accrue benefits that support its mission to challenge the way society thinks about its relationship with the natural world as much as they contribute funding towards its operations, programmes and research. Jim will explore some of the wider issues associated with a closer relationship between museums and business, and will use examples to show how these can be channeled in order to develop a more equitable relationship with funders, enabling new kinds of dialogue beyond the traditional donor/recipient loop. To Charge or not to Charge: Museums and the Admission Dilemma Silvia Filippini Fantoni, Director of Interpretation, Media and Evaluation, Indianapolis Museum of Art The debate about whether museums should be free or not is a hot topic at the moment. Many keep on advocating for free admission to guarantee access to those with limited income. Due to the lingering effects of the economic downturn, however, others have started to question the sustainability of the free admission model which relies heavily on public funding, large endowment draws and contributions from an aging donor base. In order to contribute to the debate and help institutions that are currently considering switching business models, Silvia Filippini Fantoni from the Indianapolis Museum of Art will share their experience with the recent move to a general admission charge. During the presentation she will discuss, amongst other things, the reason behind the switch, how this has affected attendance, and audience demographics, but also the impact that it has had on membership numbers, and visitor engagement with the museum and gardens. Silvia will also discuss how the institution has responded to and will continue to address some of the challenges that were brought by this change. In the past few years the IMA has collected lots of data about its visitors both before and after the change. This has given them the opportunity to document the shift in admission policy in a very detailed way and share such useful data with the museum community. Why Corporations Invest in Museums Jessica Litwin, Senior Account Manager, Boster Group This talk explores how sustainable, long-term partnerships between the private sector and museums can result in a resilient funding model in a climate when government funding is being reduced. Corporate investment in museums has come a long way from its foundations in philanthropy. It is now a component of a diverse development environment, running in tandem alongside trusts and foundations grants, major gifts, government funding and individual giving. However, corporate investment in museums is drastically different from the other forms of museum funding we see – it requires a return on investment. This return on investment can help guarantee a more long-term and resilient funding model, but also presents challenges to the institutions being funded. By exploring a series of case studies, this presentation will examine why the private sector invests, the types of return on investment sought by corporations, and opportunities and challenges in the museum sector. Matt Caines, Editor, Guardian Culture Professional Network will chair this session
