Summary

As museums worldwide shuttered in 2020 because of the coronavirus, New York-based cultural strategist András Szántó conducted a series of interviews with an international group of museum leaders. In a moment when economic, political, and cultural shifts are signaling the start of a new era, the directors speak candidly about the historical limitations and untapped potential of art museums. Each of the twenty-eight conversations in this book explores a particular topic of relevance to art institutions today and tomorrow. What emerges from the series of in-depth conversations is a composite portrait of a generation of museum leaders working to make institutions more open, democratic, inclusive, experimental and experiential, technologically savvy, culturally polyphonic, attuned to the needs of their visitors and communities, and concerned with addressing the defining issues of the societies around them. The dialogues offer glimpses of how museums around the globe are undergoing an accelerated phase of reappraisal and reinvention.

    Welcome back to Mill Grange in the latest uplifting romance in the bestselling Mill Grange series!
     
    Helen Rogers has been lying to herself over her feelings for Tom since the moment they met. And for good reason; not only are they colleagues, working together with the archaeology groups at Mill Grange, but her sabbatical is almost over and she'll soon have to return to Bath.
     
    Tom Harris knows he's falling in love with Helen. How could he not? She's smart, kind and great with his son Dylan. But with his ex-wife suddenly offering him a chance to spend more time with Dylan, and the staff of Mill Grange about to host a wedding, everything else has to be put to one side. Even his feelings for a certain archaeologist.
     
    As Helen's time at Mill Grange runs short, the two are forced to consider what matters most...
     
    *Can be read as a standalone, but best as a part of the wider series: get your hands on Midsummer at Mill Grange to start from book one!*

    I made this book thinking of you, of how difficult the life of an architecture student is in all dimensions. Ive been there.
    In it you will find great hints and tips on what to expect from the course, what the teachers are really asking, how to manage your time, and how to improve your cultural know-how, as well as to find why youre taking this course and how to remake yourself as a person. I will be encouraging you to go all the way to graduation day. You will learn to deal with failure and mistakes, to stay focus on your target, about the sacrifices that the course requires for you to succeed, to be disciplined, and most of all, what is architecture all about.
    Ive also added a terminology for architecture so that you become acquainted with the architecture jargon and enrich your knowledge.
