4 – Thriving in the New Culture Ecology (workshop)

How Museums Can Increase Participation Through Partnerships and Creative, Strategic Programming

This learning session will focus on ways that museums can build fruitful, lasting community partnerships and develop creative experiential, participatory programming.

We will honestly look at obstacles and the reality of often working with limited resources but how despite challenges it is still possible to increase participation and build new audiences. Utilizing examples from what Lackawanna County, a former coal mining region, has been able to accomplish, participants will also take an active part in reflecting on their individual situations and strategizing to build on their strengths.
