Community engagement is imperative for programming, exhibitions, and planning for the future and there are many methods. But how do you know what is best for your organization? And how do you know it is working? This session addresses the need for ongoing and consistent community engagement at different stages in an organization’s operations, including lessons from other cultural institutions and planning processes.
Panelists will share:
- How to identify areas of museum operations where community consultation and engagement are necessary.
- Effective (and affective!) methods used both within and outside of museums for sustained community engagement.
- Ways to adapt museum roles and responsibilities for community engagement to thrive.
