Call for Papers: Risk and Reward: Enabling a Culture of Innovation

Oxford University Museums are looking for presentations from colleagues working in museums and cultural organisations on how they encourage their staff to be more innovative and take risks. This could be through programming, training, funding opportunities, interdisciplinary working groups or different approaches to staffing and organisational structures. We want to hear about techniques being used, how they are influencing the organisational model, the risks taken, rewards reaped and lessons learned.

The deadline for submission is 8 April, and we aim to turn things around pretty quickly and have speaker invitations out by 13 April – it is quite a light touch application process.

The conference will be held on 10 June 2016, at the Museum of Natural History, Oxford, Delegate fee £70.

Any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch, either with me or via our team email aspire@museums.ox.ac.uk.

Full details of the event themes and the call for papers is on their website
