How can museums be actively connected to their local communities?
In a world where the number of ‘things to do’ is ever increasing, museums need to work like every other organisation to get audiences through the door.
The Museums Reach Out! event in May 2018 hosted 65 museum experts and professionals at Berlinische Galerie to take a closer look at UK and German outreach projects at museums and galleries. ‘Museum Outreach’ is the toolkit that museums use to find their audiences, to communicate with them, to find out what they want, and to give it to them via the new, engaging museum of the twenty-first century.
“It was a really fascinating and informative event and such a wonderful way to make connections and possibly the start of new creative partnerships.”
