Update: December 2, 2019 — Announcing the winners of our free workshop giveaway!
We received an incredible number of submissions for our free workshop giveaway. We read every comment, saw every social media post, and absolutely loved hearing more about what makes every institution that wrote in f***ing awesome!
Without further ado, we’d like to announce the winners (yes, we said winners!) of our free audience development workshop. Congratulations to The National Deaf Life Museum at Gallaudet University and the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles!
Here’s why The National Deaf Life Museum at Gallaudet University is f***ing awesome:
“The National Deaf Life Museum at Gallaudet University is small but mighty! We recently rebranded in an effort to reach out to new audiences and let them know that the Deaf community has a number of stories stretching back hundreds of years. We are working on expanding our audience and hope to become an important destination in Washington DC.”
The San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is making a difference in its community:
“San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles is F**KING AWESOME because not only are we the first quilts and textiles museum in the U.S., but the only one on the West Coast. Everyday, our exhibits and programs show how wide and diverse quilts and textile art can be.
Right now, we are showcasing our first crowd-sourced show about Internet memes. The works who how memes can capture personal and political moments. We are also showcasing works from our incredibly talented artist members, with works ranging from sculpture to quilts to wearable art. Before that, we had a water themed exhibition where we invited community members to sample locally brewed beer to draw attention to water ecology in the Bay Area.
Finally, we work with lots of community partners to create interesting programming. One is Quilts as Women’s Shelter, which we partner with Next Door Solutions to Domestic Violence, to teach survivors of sexual assault how to quilt and inviting to build a community. We also partnered with Social Justice Sewing Academy, a nonprofit that uses to quilting to empower youth to understand and take action on social justice issues they care about.
This isn’t half of what we’ve done and plan to do. With Museum Hack’s help, the staff at SJMQT further our reach and better connect with our local communities. We want to make a positive impact!”
Congratulations to both The National Deaf Life Museum at Gallaudet University and the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles. We’re so excited to work with you!
