Description

Museum & Heritage Studies at Victoria University of Wellington invites you to a one-day workshop with Dr Lee Davidson (VUW) & Professor Leticia Pérez (School of Conservation, Restoration & Museography, Mexico)

This one-day workshop will equip you with knowledge and tools to help your institution become a global leader in promoting intercultural understanding, both through your own practices and through the rich cultural experiences you offer to audiences.

Museums work across multiple cultural, geographical and political borders through exhibitions, professional exchanges, internship programmes, joint research projects, satellite museums and digital media.

This workshop aims to help museums and other GLAM organisations operate more effectively in this interconnected, intercultural world, and achieve maximum impact at the local, national and international level.

Content:

Grounded in the latest theory and real-world research, this workshop includes both new ways of thinking about why and how museums work across cultural, geographical and political borders, and practical tools and tailored advice.

Part I (morning session):

  • The polycentral museum - a new way of thinking about the purpose, practice and impact of museums
  • Working collaboratively to build strong international/cross-cultural partnerships
  • Applying intercultural skills for museum professionals
  • Museum diplomacy: what is it and what value does it add?

Part II (afternoon session):

  • Developing and hosting international/intercultural exhibitions
  • Engaging audiences and evaluating impact.

Who should attend:

GLAM sector professionals in all roles who are currently working globally or seeking to internationalise their work
Staff involved in developing and staging touring exhibitions, or exhibitions aimed at promoting intercultural understanding
Managers, touring teams, exhibition developers, interpreters, curators, designers, and educators.
