The crowds attracted to the show in CCP and the proximity of the partner museums was a successful combination, “We hope to come up with more collaborations like this not only once a year but also innovate with some other activities that would bring in other interest groups. For example what if Museums collaborate to attract 30 somethings. We can transform these museum spaces into after hours party events. There are many other things in the pipeline of collaboration and making different institutions work together so everyone benefits in this cross marketing and cross audience development efforts.”
