Virtual Museum Network - Failing Forward

How did a negative experience improve your working practice?

No project is perfect and we often learn most from things that didn’t exactly go according to plan.

In a sector that’s dependent of funding, museums are inclined to celebrate success, and to be very quiet about the things that didn’t work out. In the technology sector, where new tools and devices are introduced continuously it is much more common to share experiences and learning in order to help the field improve.

When museums start to experiment more and become early adopters of new technologies, could and should they also adopt a more open & sharing culture?

Rather than listening to a single speaker we would like to encourage more discussion and sharing this time. How did you learn from failures in the past?

What did you learn about working with external partners through challenging communication?
How did your planning improve after a project that didn’t deliver on time?
If you worked with museums as a technology partner, what experience taught you most? And what could museums learn from it?
What practical issues got in the way when developing an amazing new installation?

We’re looking forward to a learning and sharing with you at this Failing Forward Meetup.

Please note, this Meetup will be held on a Monday.
As usual, tea and coffee will be available at the Museum Café after the Meetup.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
