Our culture sector is top notch

The effort UK staff in our culture sector is going through for us (as a public) is top notch.

At the museumNext conference we had Tate from London, National Museums of Scotland, Science gallery of Dublin and many others UK institutions all sharing and making sense of what they could be trying to do in the digital revolution.

The staff share strategies, talk tools, prepare for success, openly present their failures, talk budgets, changing perceptions and it’s all geared to make your visit on and offline, the best.

They’re not interested in overloading visitors with words, interpretation, apps and complex exhibits. They want the best visit for your time available and your needs. They want to use technology to invite new relevant participation not confuse or alienate you.

Our museums too are sharing knowledge with this year’s best in the world. MoMA from New York, rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and our very own Science museum in London.

The best part is, all the staff are normal people. Like you and me. They have a passion to make our museums and galleries the best and the drive to make changes and keep changing.

We should look forward to seeing the results and some awards for our teams’ efforts soon.
