‘Museum Doctor’ Ngaire Blankenberg is internationally recognised for her work fixing museums, planning cultural destinations and revitalising urban spaces through culture. She is co-editor of Museums, Cities and Soft Power and the Manual of Digital Museum Planning.
Ngaire’s work is guided by the belief that museums are too important to remain colonial, elitist and irrelevant. Yet here we are. Through her work advising over 50 museums and cultural projects in 35 cities on 5 continents, she is on a mission to diagnose what exactly is wrong with museums and how to put them right.
