Nina Simon, Executive Director,
Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History
Nina Simon will share the vision behind OFBYFOR ALL, a new global initiative to help civic and cultural organisations become OF, BY, and FOR their communities. OFBYFOR ALL is a new framework and a movement – launching onstage here at MuseumNext.
For seven years, Nina has led dramatic change as director of the MAH, a small museum in California. Around the world, community rooted organisations like the MAH have opened up museums to new people in new ways. Now, we want to share our playbook for community transformation–and invite you to join in.
We envision a world in which all people have access and influence in cultural and creative spaces. We envision museums that are reflective OF their communities. Co-created BY their communities. Welcoming FOR their communities. Nina invites us to join the movement and chart a new future for museums as beloved institutions of, by, and for all.
