The group looks into the potential of museums engaging and cooperating with different stakeholders in the creative sector. It inspires through sharing creative uses of museum collections for new products and services and fosters cooperation between museums and creative sectors.

Our Actions

  • We raise the profile of museums in the context of creative industries.
  • We learn more about co-operation between museums and creative industries: what is happening and where. 
  • We prove the benefits of co-operation among cultural and creative industries for the policy makers.
  • We stimulate future collaboration between museums and creative industry agents.

We are currently working on...

  • A report documenting European museum associations and governing bodies agents’ thoughts on collaborations between museums and creative industries.
