Nancy is giving a free talk at the National Library of New Zealand on Monday 15 February:
THE MUSEUM AS START-UP
The museum business model is broken: overly dependent on the largess of a dying breed of philanthropists and unable to demonstrate impact and social value to younger, civic-minded audiences, museums risk sinking into irrelevance as well as bankruptcy. With unique constraints that would daunt the most courageous of investors, museums cannot be run like typical consumer-serving businesses. But in this discussion of the future and sustainability of the museum model, Nancy Proctor will ask what museums would become if they were to reboot in the “era of the citizen” as “lean start-ups”: agile, iterative, and entrepreneurial in nature.
Monday 15 February
Co-create Space (ground floor), National Library of New Zealand, Molesworth Street
3pm for a 3.30pm start - finishing up at 5pm
Seats are limited to 80 places.
