On Thursday I was back in London to take part in the re.volution hack day on ‘Reframing the Function of Governance’ at the Gulbenkian Foundation. re.volution is a peer learning network designed for the leaders of micro, small and medium sized arts and cultural organisations, organised by Mission Models Money. On Thursday we looked at the governance challenges facing different types of arts organisation, the extent to which the traditional charitable organisation governance model is fit for purpose in these contexts and how to ensure boards address the higher level aspects of governance. This turned into an incredibly enjoyable day, culminating in us designing an ‘existential app’ involving apples, oranges, bananas and rhinos (you really had to be there!). Who knew governance could be such fun!
