By MAS – Museum am de Stroom Antwerp, Belgium
Feb 13, 2018

In 2011 the city of Antwerp united different city collections in its new city museum, the MAS. Both the cultural policies and urban planning policies since the 1990s explain the creation of the MAS. In 1997, three of Antwerp’s city museums did not manage to attract national funding because of their shabby conditions of conservation. Hence, the Antwerp city council had to take a decision either to renovate these museums or to close them. Instead of renovating each museum, the city decided to create a brand-new city museum for the old collections in the old port area of Antwerp, which would add to the urban renewal of this run-down quarter.

Inspired by the findings of the Audience Growth Initiative, marketing and development directors from nine orchestras undertook a follow-up Patron Growth Initiative with Prescott & Associates to tackle the more complex issue of building sustainable support, factoring in both attendance and donations — thus helping orchestras grow total lifetime value. This presentation outlines the findings and recommendations of the yearlong effort that included data mining (on a database of 545,000 concertgoers and donors), qualitative, and quantitative research. This presentation debuted at the League's 2011 National Conference.
