We believe in a progressive, open and accessible museum sector. And we know we are not alone in this.

But where do you start, when you're haunted by deadlines? And where do you find like minded souls when you don't always feel supported within your own organisation? To make change happen, we need each other: the aspiring museum professional, the old trooper and the freelancer.  

Once a month, the team of Night Shift organises an evening full of inspiration and debate for people who work with museums, art and heritage in the Netherlands. Every night a topical theme is discussed, including examples and provocations from the sector and beyond. At Night Shift  you can share experiences, find inspiration and meet new (critical) friends.  

Help us  make Night Shift happen in 2019.

Inclusive, accessible and open
The team organises the evenings on a voluntary basis. Het Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam offers us a room free of charge. We want to be inclusive, accessible and open, both on stage and behind the scenes. Together with a diverse team of consultants, we put together the program for the new season. We strive for an inclusive speaker policy.

Without our speakers Night Shift would not exist, so we think it’s important to thank them. We give them a meal, a drink and a small gift. Self-employed speakers receive a (modest) speaker’s fee. However, we also want to keep the evenings accessible. That is why we do not sell tickets, but ask for a pay-what-you-can donation.  

Night Shift evenings are regularly ‘sold out’ but unfortunately we can't covere our costs with the donations collected on the night. With a one-time donation to this campaign you can help us organise an evening (almost) every month in 2019. With €2000,- all costs would be covered.   

With €2000,- we can keep the website up and running for a year, organise nine evenings and thank our speakers with a meal, drink, gift and speaker fee (for freelancers). If we achieve our goal of €2000,- we can put together another good, varied program in the coming year and keep the evenings free of charge.   

In the past year and a half, we have discussed the following questions: How do we develop an inclusive human resources policy? Who (don’t) feel represented by our collections? Is there a place for humor in the museum? Could things be done differently? What to do in times of crisis? What does a good entrance look like?

Thank you all fo your generous support! Thanks to you we have now raised €400,- in total. This means we covered the costs of our first 2 events this year. On January 17th we will kick things off with the question: Can we be less professional please? Because we think all the red tape might get in the way of innovation & taking a little risk here and there... What happens when we take an unconventional approach?

Thank you so much for your support. Another €100,- was raised through our Dutch fundraising campaign, bringing us to a total of €120,- in the first few hours of our campaign. With another €80,- we will have covered the costs of our January event. Thank you for your support!

We agree having to run the campaign on 2 platforms is less than ideal, but this is due to the payment options on both platforms. We'll keep you posted on the total amount raised on both platforms.
