Can well-being be measured and what can museums add to this equation? After her popular keynote at NEMO’s last conference, Marie Briguglio was invited to give a Webinar focusing on this topic. Join the free NEMO Webinar to learn more about the relationship between museums, economics and well-being and how to use this knowledge.
Marie Briguglio completed her PhD (Economics) at Stirling University, a MSc (Environmental and Resources Economics) at University College London and an Honours degree (Economics) at the University of Malta. She is a Resident Academic at the University of Malta’s Economics Department and Principal Investigator on numerous international and national research projects, including several in the domain of economics and cultural participation. Much of Marie’s published work lies in the field of market failure: from externalities in the environmental domain, to participation in the arts, focusing both on the implications of such phenomena on socio-economic well-being and on intervention design to enhance participation. Her more recent work has focused on the role that political preferences play in determining voluntary cooperation by citizens. Marie returned to academia after a distinguished career in policy-making, having held senior positions in Environmental and Planning authorities, and having served on councils and boards both in Malta and within the European Union. An award-winning screenwriter/broadcaster, Marie also remains highly active in outreach projects, including as Chairperson of the President of Malta's Forum for Active Community Engagement.
The webinar is facilitated in collaboration with MICC - Media Integration and Communication Centre and NEMECH - New Media for Cultural Heritage.
