Keynote, EMAC 2012

Michael Dixon, director of the Natural History Museum (NHM), delivers the keynote speech at EMAC 2012

The European Museum Advisors Conference is a biennial meeting organised by and for museum advisors and professionals.

At last year's conference in Lisbon, Dixon delivered a keynote speech entitled Commercial Entrepreneurism, Philanthropy and Government Subsidy.

Dixon talks about how free admission and the mixed model of funding for England’s national museums has enabled the NHM to radically reinvent itself, expand its facilities and triple its visitor numbers.
