About the Book

The Art of Relevance is jam-packed with inspiring examples, case studies, and practical advice on how your museum can become more vital to your community.  As Nina stated,

“I’ve been simultaneously energized and mystified by the frequency with which the word “relevance” comes up in the nonprofit world. Last summer, a powerful encounter with two 130-year-old surfboards spurred me from curiosity to action. I dove into research and talked to dozens of people doing inspiring, surprising work around the world. I worked to translate their stories into a tight, poetic, enjoyable, useful form.”

“Relevance is not something an institution can assign by fiat. Your work matters when it matters to people—when THEY deem it relevant, not you. The Art of Relevance will help you identify the people you seek to engage, empathize with their concerns and interests, and develop authentic ways to invite them into your work on their own terms.”
