Diversifying Income: Beyond the Shop

Event Date:27 May 2021 10:00 am — 27 May 2021 11:30am

Many museums are looking at ways to increase and diversify their income streams.  This webinar will provide an overview of the breadth of different income-generation opportunities open to museums, from venue hire to store tours, sleepovers to providing services.

We’ll be looking at the pros and cons of some of these opportunities and considering some examples of success.  There will also be a chance to consider the factors that help make a new income-generation venture a success and to ask questions.

The online session will be held over Zoom and led by Rosalind Johnson co-founder of A Different View and an experienced consultant and trainer. With over 20 years of experience in the cultural sector she has wide ranging knowledge of income generation both in museums and the wider visitor attraction sector.

The session is open to all staff, volunteers and Trustees working in museums in the south east, but will particularly suit those in small to medium sized museums who are just starting to look at income generation opportunities beyond the shop and café.

Attendees at this session will also have the opportunity to apply for our Innovate to Generate grant programme (https://southeastmuseums.org/support/grants/).
