A community of consultants helping museums and cultural nonprofits.
Qm² is a community of consultants. Our shared mission is to help nonprofit organizations, particularly museums and cultural groups, build successful futures by implementing powerful concepts of learning, leadership, management, and design.
Although we each operate our own business, we share values, our talents are complementary, and we care for and support one another.
