The race for attention from cultural consumers is tough, and cultural institutions today are in fierce competition with an increasing range of experience-oriented attractions to win the public’s favour. A faithful crowd of visitors are reserved for the few, and for the many, it is no longer enough, e.g. to have quality art on the walls. Nowadays, visitors also demand delicious food and shopping – a total experience. Therefore, many cultural institutions today must balance art and business to justify their existence to owners, politicians, foundations, and citizens.
At this morning session, we seek answers to questions like: How do cultural institutions stand out and differentiate in a tough market? What role does the identity of a museum, gallery, concert hall, festival, etc. play? And what role does funding play these days?
To answer these questions, we have invited Lisbeth Lund, Director at J.F. Willumsen’s Museum and Michael Bjørn Nellemann from Det Obelske Familiefond to join our CEO Anne-Mette Højland to share their insights and experiences about creating and working with cultural identities.
Time: Thursday the 23rd of May at 9-10.30 am.
Place: IDna Group, Store Kirkestræde 1, 1st floor, 1073 Copenhagen.
