International Museum Day is a seminal event in the international cultural calendar which exists to raise awareness of the importance of museums as a “means for cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples”.
To mark the occasion this year, the Cause4 team has chosen to highlight the event by sharing a short reflection on our favourite museums across the country.
In 2010, outgoing Arts Council England Executive Director Mark Robinson wrote a key paper entitled “Making Adaptive Resilience Real”, considering the features of a resilient arts organisation and how these could be fostered through organisational and sector leadership. More than 10 years later – and following a significant disruption to the sector due to Covid-19 – how can leaders ensure these features are in place?
This month, we spoke with a Charity Leader advocating for the power that girls have as community leaders, and a Fellow who’s harnessing her knowledge to help drive fundraising at the country’s largest arts centre. Who will inspire you?
To celebrate Heritage Compass applications being open again, we take a look at a few heritage organisations that have used the challenging year of lockdown as an opportunity to re-invent themselves, or re-think their offering.
And just like that, we’re halfway through this year’s Picks of the Months! This month, we spoke with a Charity Leader who is an influential voice in helping the long-term unemployed, and a Trustee who became a Chair during the pandemic.
Of all the things daffodils could possibly teach someone, you’d think fundraising is pretty unlikely. But on a cold February evening in 2019, four strangers and I at the Charity Fast-Track bootcamp in London were given a £1 coin and challenged to turn it into something much, much more.
