On Saturday 17 November 2018, the NEMO Working Groups are organising meetings running in parallel (10:00-12:30). You also have the option to join a guided tour of the MUZA Museum.
Further information about the meetings can be found below. The NEMO Working Groups have all been initiated by NEMO to offer opportunities for working and expert groups to get connected, and to support them in their work. In return, the groups give important advice to NEMO to enhance its actions at a European level. The NEMO Working Groups have conducted several studies, organised events and published reports, toolkits, recommendations and findings throughout the years.

Working Group Museums and Creative Industries
Led by Ineta Zelca Simansone, Creative Museum Think Tank, Latvia
Discussion: “Museums and Creative Industries – An unlikely partnership?”
Moderated by Raivis Simansons
This discussion will look at the research findings of the NEMO Working Group Museums and Creative Industries from the last four years. Established in 2014 on the initiative of Creative Museum Think Tank, the WG seeks to reflect upon the museums’ role in the wider cultural policy field of the European Commission's framework programme Creative Europe (2014-2020), with regard to their potential in the creative and innovative field.
The discussion will focus on the difficult question of why museums hardly see themselves as part of creative industries. Panellists will discuss from their experiences from different museums and service organisations.
Confirmed panellists :
- Ragnar Siil, Founder and Managing Partner, Creativity Lab, Estonia
- Annemies Broekgaarden, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, The Netherlands
- Chris Bailey, Freelance Museums and Creative Industries Expert, Ireland
- Jill Cousins, Director, Hunt Museum, Ireland
Working Group Advocacy and PA
Led by Lodewijk Kuiper, Netherlands Museums Association
Two Advocacy Cases – MUZA Museum and Museums Association
Sandro Debono (Malta), the project lead of MUZA, will share his experiences advocating for the flagship project of the European Capital of Culture 2018; the MUZA Museum. Then Alistair Brown (UK) will present a recent public affairs campaign from the British Museums Association. Lodewijk Kuiper (Netherlands) will together with Alistair brief the participants about NEMO’s advocacy campaign that is being prepared for the European elections in May 2019. Consequently, we will have a dialogue with the workshop participants regarding their public affairs projects and how museums can profit from it. We will end the workshop with a visit to the MUZA Museum.
