EdCom’s Trends Committee is taking a deeper look at emerging phenomena identified in the 2020 edition of TrendsWatch from the Center for the Future of Museums, which focuses on various income streams that support and sustain museums. In this session, they turn their attention to the all-important topic of “Earned Income” and its impacts on museum education with a case study from the Great Lakes Science Center.
