NEXT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WEBINAR PRESENTED BY AAMC

SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 25, 2015

Curators and Community Engagement
Thursday, June 25, 2015
2:00pm - 3:30pm ET

Description

What exactly does "community engagement" mean in art museums? And for art curators? As museums seek to diversify and expand audiences, what role might our work on exhibitions and collections play? This webinar will tackle how to develop community engagement projects as part of exhibition planning, co-creating with the audience, developing partnerships that result in mutually beneficial and scaleable projects, measuring success, collaborating with educators, and building new discourses around non-contemporary collections. Examples from museums of varying sizes and resources will be discussed so as to offer curators a range of models to consider.

The webinar is moderated by Beth Citron, Rubin Museum of Art, and Marina Pacini, Memphis Brooks Museum of Art; panelists are Elisabeth Callihan, Head of Multi-Generational Learning, Minneapolis Institute of Arts, and Christine Starkman, Curator of Asian Art, Ancient to Contemporary, Museum of Fine Art, Houston.
