As more museums and non-profit institutions are seeking to pool resources in order to survive, three different collaborative organizations, the Washington Art Consortium, Balboa Park Cultural Partnership, and California Exhibition Resources Alliance, provide examples of some of the benefits inherent in combining resources and working together. Drawing from specific initiatives, these museum professionals will detail some of the motivations behind their institution’s conception, and explore how collaboration has benefited each of their organizations.
