B.3 CAF – Organization

One of the critical aspects of ‘fostering a culture of sustainability’ involves organizations that act as cultural facilitators.  As the culture of our society changes, it is critical that cultural institutions are ‘learning organizations’ that continue to relate to the world as it changes around them.  This has profound implications for ensuring that the missions of museums are linked to the dynamics of culture, as well as for how they carry out their missions.

When considering a new public program initiative, ask how well the program will:

  • Challenge personal and institutional assumptions
  • Be guided by clearly articulated goals, objectives and outcomes
  • Use the most effective vehicles for achieving goals
  • Create a community of learning within staff
  • Integrate scientific, local and traditional knowledge
  • Act as catalysts for partnering community organizations
