Now we are (almost) five: AMICO’s strategy for sustainability

The Art Museum Image Consortium (AMICO) has been making museum multimedia available for educational use since 1998. It is also one of the very few networked cultural heritage activities to try, and succeed, at being fully self-sufficient without government or grant funding. With over 3 million users at licensed institution, we’re becoming a ‘fact of life’ in arts and humanities education. After five years, participants can reflect concretely on the AMICO model, from a business, technical, museological and educational perspective. Each panelist offer a personal perspective on AMICO’s strategy and objectives, as initially articulated, as they have evolved, and as they continue to develop in the future.
