The Economics of Museums and Cultural Heritage
21 - 24 September 2011

Location Amsterdam University College
Language English
Deadline July 20

How to sustain a museum and a cultural heritage site in these times? They are costly to maintain, and even more costly to develop. Revenues are difficult to generate. Governmental authorities are getting less generous in their grants. How to face these challenges?

These changes call for new and creative ways of running the modern museum. It is a demanding task that requires advanced and thorough knowledge on policy design, on the content, the organization and the financing of museums. This course aims to stimulate new ideas on the ways to realize the values of museums using a cultural economics perspective. We will explore important developments that affect the museum now and in the future and will investigate the ways in which museums can cope with or take advantage of these developments.

Participants will be divided in groups according to their role within cultural institutions. They will follow separate, specialized sessions addressing their specific needs. There will also be joint sessions where participants having different roles within cultural institutions will confront their needs and objectives.

- Participants will engage with well-known academics and professionals who will bridge theoretical knowledge and practical experience.
- Participants will work on a common project in small groups.
- The course includes visits to cultural institutions.

Who can apply
- Policy makers involved in museum policies at local and national level
- Professionals working in museums and private institutions (e.g. foundations)
- Students who are interested in these issues
- Curious people who would like to now more about the subject

A maximum of 30 students will be admitted.

Cost and accommodation
Professionals: €1000
Students: €500
The fee includes refreshments and materials and excludes accommodation and meals. Meals can be provided on additional costs.
