Hi, I'm Nina Simon.

I spend my days working on OF/BY/FOR ALL, a nonprofit I founded to make civic and cultural organizations of, by, and for everyone.

If you like to read, check out my best-selling books The Participatory Museum and The Art of Relevance. You can also read hundreds of posts on the Museum 2.0 blog, which I authored from 2006-2019, and my recent essays on Medium.

If you are more of an audio-visual person, here are two TEDx talks I gave on opening up museums and deepening relevance. Or a short video from when I was named Santa Cruz County Woman of the Year.

If you’re an in-person person, I live in Santa Cruz and travel often (well, a bit less often at the moment). Here’s a list of upcoming speaking events.

And if you want to chat, or you’re curious what I’m writing, sharing, and wondering now, connect with me via one of the links below.

P.S. A tip if you plan to cold-email me: please try to be as specific as possible about how I can help.
