Culture Business Melbourne


Culture Business New York City, 28 -29 June 2018


More than a hundred senior development officers from 10 countries joined the two-day conference at the Jewish Museum and the Museum of the City of New York.

We were surprised by the English National Ballet’s ruthless dedication to profitable fundraising, enjoyed the honesty of Bank of America’s conversation with the J. Paul Getty Museum, in awe of Auckland Art Gallery’s resilience to financial instability and inspired by The Shed’s ambitious capital campaign. We witnessed the best of what arts fundraising has to offer.

Thank you to our Official Partners, the Jewish Museum and MCNY, to our Global Partners Tessitura and Plateforme 10 and Conference Partners King Baudouin Foundation, Cultural Services of the French Embassy and AMDA for supporting Culture Business NYC, the most memorable edition of the conference to date.

The presentations and key learnings are published on each session on the program page.
