Are you going to be at AAM’s conference in DC next week? Want to attend an awesome event about audience engagement?
Join us on Saturday, May 28, at 1 p.m. for Museum Map 2016! We’re joining curators, programmers, and educators to discuss current trends in audience engagement at the amazing Luce Center at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. We’ll be reflecting on our shared experiences as audience engagement specialists, finding new ways to connect with audiences and each other. Read on to find out more.
Museum Map was started by Adam Reed Rozan, Director of Audience Engagement at the Worcester Art Museum, and Scott Stulen, Curator of Audience Experiences and Performance at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. By bringing professionals from across the audience engagement spectrum together, they seek to foster networking and collaboration to address the isolation of working in innovative and pioneering directions.
This year, Museum Map will be discussing the themes of Empathy, Play, Social Justice, and Sustainability. We’ll be joining Conversation Leaders to discuss how Museum Hack engages audiences through our “reverent irreverence” style. Our team will provide insights into how we utilize Play to foster deep visitor engagement with objects and bring people together in passionate, social museum experiences.
Afterwards, we’ll travel together to the White House for a huge group selfie, with a few Museum Hack-y surprises along the way!!
Museum Map 2016 is a great opportunity to meet fellow audience engagement specialists and spark and ongoing conversation about how we can better serve our visitors and create engaging museum experiences. We’re super excited to be a part of it! Join us and RSVP to the Facebook page here.
