This afternoon I have been interviewed by Claire Antrobus for an article commissioned by NESTA and the Clore Leadership Programme about how being more user-focussed and outward-looking could transform arts and cultural organisations. Claire is an independent arts consultant based in York with a particular interest in user and open innovation in art galleries and museums. She is currently 2009/2010 NESTA Innovation Fellow on the Clore Leadership Programme and one of Arts Council England’s new peer assessors for visual arts, having previously worked for ACE, the British Council and NCVO. We had a really interesting and wide-ranging conversation about the relationship between professional and amateur arts organisations, appreciating the varying levels of understanding and participation amongst audience members, the balance between user involvement and strong artistic leadership and much more.
