UBC Online Workshop “Public Engagement in Art Museums”
New UBC Online Workshop “Public Engagement in Art Museums”, starts Oct 21
The international University of British Columbia (UBC) Centre for Cultural Planning and Development is offering a new online professional development workshop: Public Engagement in Art Museums (Three scheduled online sessions, Oct 21, Oct 28 & Nov 4 from 10am-12noon Pacific Time. 100% Online). Examine how curators and content creators are connecting with today’s visitors using socially engaged art practices and innovative programming. Amid shifts in education, marketing, and visitor services, understand how museums are adopting new practices and programs to engage audiences as they reconsider their roles in the community and the roles of their visitors. Discuss models of public engagement across a wide variety of museums, and the future of public engagement programs at museums and other cultural institutions. INSTRUCTOR: Allison Agsten is Director of the Old Bank District Museum and the former Curator of Public Engagement and Director of Visitor Services at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, USA. This workshop can be taken individually for professional development, or applied to the UBC Certificate in Cultural Planning – an international professional development program delivered 100% online.
