Rethinking museum governance

I am posting a short-ish film of a discussion organised by Apollo in which four of us – Xavier Bray, the Director of the Wallace Collection, Sarah Rowley of Charles Russell Speechlys, Tom Marks, the former editor of Apollo, and I – consider some of the knotty problems surrounding museum governance: what to do about minutes to satisfy the requirements of history; how to ensure diversity on a board when the role is unpaid; to what extent is it possible to define and describe the requirements of probity; how to ensure that trustees lead on fund-raising, but at the same time are representative of the audience. No solutions are provided, only a description of some of the current issues.
