From Baroque architecture to the German Reich and from the Soviet GDR to contemporary artist studios, CTM16 Berlin has been a tremendous cultural and historical experience. The city of Berlin reinvents itself constantly, its museums have changed and we change. Will Gompertz, Arts Editor at the BBC, highlighted our mission to always connect with our changing audiences. Museums have to embrace with dialogue: teach tolerance to millennials and show them how to engage with the variety of cultures which make up our world.
Thank you to the 50 international speakers for their inspiring talks, to our host the Deutsches Historisches Museum, to our sponsors Visit Berlin, izi.TRAVEL, The Art Newspaper and the Los Angeles Tourism and Convention Board for their support.
Now back at your museum, share these insightful key learnings with your team.
Have a lovely summer.
We look forward to seeing you in Quebec in November 2016 and Los Angeles next year in November 2017 for new adventures.
« I thought the vibe at this year’s conference was great. We are living in very strange times, making the arts – and Communicating the Museum – all the more important. What Agenda is doing is fantastic » Will Gompertz, Art Editor, BBC
