Enterprise & Philanthropy Conference 2016

What motivates individuals to support culture and heritage?  How can museums approach businesses to work in partnership? How can the sector generate income from commercial operations? 

These topics and others were addressed at a conference on 2nd March 2016 at the Museum of London. The event was organised by Hampshire Cultural Trust and Norfolk Museums Service and attended by over 90 delegates and speakers.

Keynote speakers included Peter Maple, Visiting Lecturer at London South Bank University and St. Mary's University and Anne Young, Head of Strategic Planning at the Heritage Lottery Fund. In addition, panel sessions took place based on the learning from the 'Inspiring a Culture of Philanthropy' and the 'SHARED Enterprise' Catalyst projects; as well as a session led by representatives from a selection of trusts and foundations. One to one fundraising clinics were also offered by the Fundraising Practice.

Feedback gathered following the conference shows delegates found the sessions inspiring and informative, with one participant saying: 'Really excellent. Fantastic presentations, very informative, confident and full of information. Do it again!'
