Cultural Innovations (CI) began in 1997 as the Advisory Service of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. In 2002 CI became a private company - registered in the UK. Our roots lie within the international museum community - our origins are unique and they inform our unique insights into building effective and sustainable working partnerships with our clients – be they long standing cultural institutions or newly established development organisations.
Since our formation as an independent organisation, Cultural Innovations has developed into a leading, international, cultural consultancy, providing an extensive and integrated portfolio of services for any stage along the development path – from the development of a clear and structured vision, through the preparation of interpretive master plans and concept studies, to the conceptual and operational management of culturally based projects.
January 2011 saw a major restructuring of the business to help prepare for the next decade of future museum planning and development. Martyn Best continued in his role of CEO, running the company from our UK base in London. Meanwhile, co-founder Robert Barnett left Cultural Innovations to start up a new business in North America.
2012 sees an ever increasing global reach, with significant new projects in both the Middle East and Far East, together with an increasing contribution and focus on the European market, led by Dr Rainer Tredt, the director of our German office in Bavaria.
Our website provides an introduction to Cultural Innovations, to our projects and to the creative, professional and committed people who are at the core of our expanding range of services.
