Communicating the Museum in Stockholm has been our best ever conference. The theme of Creativity was quite challenging to start with, but we all found it very inspiring and invigorating.
Most delegates had a chance to share and participate on stage, which made the conference highly interactive and different from previous conferences. Once more, our tone of voice – ‘we are all experts’ – was expressed in every session throughout the conference.
This year, the conference’s memorable success was due to an amazing speaker panel and fantastic organisation, to the presence of young recruits in the team, the live ‘Mamma Mia’ sing-along with 240 delegates, the magical dinner at the Nationalmuseum (which Paula Röhss managed to reopen just for us), and the Swedes’ warm hospitality at Moderna Museet and Östasiatiska Museet.
I would like to personally thank all conference partners and every delegate for coming from all around the world to attend this special event.
« Terrific conference. It was invigorating– the talks and the attendees were really quite good. As I said I think a version of this for the US would be welcomed » Jake Barton, Principal and Founder, Local Projects
« We returned home inspired! The keynote speakers, the dinners/tours, the learning sessions…all were interesting and engaging. The conference was well-organized, the theme was thoughtfully presented, and the opportunity for exchange of ideas ample.
We made many interesting contacts, and returned home with new energy to take risks and try fresh approaches. We thank you for the opportunity to present Verso—we received both praise and constructive criticism. Both were very welcome, and we will work hard to make the next Verso even better. » Kristine Thayer and Diane Richards, Minneapolis Institute of Arts
