“Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums”
10-12 November 2016
From 10-12 November 2016 NEMO – the Network of European Museum Organisations – is holding its 24th Annual Conference “Money Matters: The Economic Value of Museums” in Karlsruhe, Germany. The conference will explore the economic dimension of museums by looking at business models for museums that can lower financial dependency from public funding on the one hand and examining museum’s positive spill-over effects on different parts of society on the other.
In the wide spectrum of the economic value of museums, such as cultural tourism, job creation, regional competitiveness and development, cooperation and the creative industries, it will be discussed how museums in Europe can best open up to the manifold opportunities and engage in cooperation with other sectors.
On two panels our speakers share best practice initiatives, examples, studies and strategic approaches showing the economic impact of museums, cooperation and partnerships. As always, an internationally renown museum director will be interviewed and a series of workshops offer hands-on activities to enable museum professionals to become active partners in and for the creative sector.
Participants will also have the opportunity to attend the meetings of NEMO’s Working Groups and join the talks by their guest speakers, as well as get to know the city of Karlsruhe during city and museum tours.
The engaging programme of talks, workshops, meetings and cultural activities will bring together museum people from over 20 countries and connect them to the creative and economic sector, the EU and national policy makers.
NEMO’s Annual Conference is a platform for a vivid exchange between the European museum sector and the EU, offering a transnational perspective on relevant matters museums have to deal with in their every day activities. If you want to connect to your European museum peers and relate to EU initiatives, programmes and policies, discuss with us at Karlsruhe Palace, home to the Badisches Landesmuseum since 1919, in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany.
This year, museum professionals who are members of an organization that is a member of NEMO receive a 20% discount on the registration fee!
Registration is open until 4 November 2016
