Last week, our team was at the Museum Next conference, this year held in Rotterdam. As our first time at this conference, we wanted to create an exhibition stand that told delegates what we do but also demonstrated the unique way in which we work.
Injecting creativity and fun, we encouraged delegates to engage in the design process to co-produce our stand with us. Our ‘Museum in a Bench’ interactive also proved a popular place to take a rest – especially at lunchtime!
Over the course of three days, we were lucky to see some incredible speakers talk passionately about varied topics affecting the future of museums. Diversity, leadership and innovation were all discussed and debated. Opportunity was also provided to see a wealth of the cultural venues offered in Rotterdam, including the eclectic Het Nieuwe Instituut – Museum for Architecture, Design and Digital Culture and an evocative Robert Mapplethorpe photography exhibition at Kunsthal Rotterdam.
Museum Next Rotterdam offered a fusion of culture and discussion and an opportunity to meet and debate with like-minded professionals influencing the future of museums. Thank you to everyone who visited our stand, joined in or just talked with us – we hope to join in again next year!
If you didn’t get chance to talk to us at the event, please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
