Delegates gathered at the Royal Geographical Society on Exhibition Road for the second day of the conference which started with a keynote from American Museum Director and thought leader Nina Simon. Nina played an important role in starting MuseumNext a decade earlier, so we were delighted to have her join us in London to share her latest work (You can view Nina’s keynote here).
Nina was followed by presentations from Civil Bikes, Myseum of Toronto and Play Africa, all sharing inspiring stories of cultural experiences which are focused on their communities.
Following lunch our friends at Art Fund shared their work in a short presentation before the floor was given over to Jasper Visser for the conferences fast paced Open Stage. This started with all present singing Happy Birthday in their own language. With more than forty nationalities present, this was a memorable experience.
