Independent museum professional and international creativity expert Linda Norris will lead a discussion and workshop on the ways in which museums can contribute to the creative cultural landscape of any community, large or small. Together, we will explore questions such as:
- How do cities serve as hubs for human creativity?
- What is the museum’s role in nurturing, documenting, and preserving a community's creative cultural landscape?
- What strategies might museums employ to help community members more fully participate in, benefit from, and share responsibility for the creative cultural landscape?
Drawing inspiration from projects around the world, you'll get the chance to use your own creative skills to imagine a more creative, connected city by working together (and, have fun too!)
Norris is the co-author, with Rainey Tisdale, of Creativity in Museum Practice (to be published in Ukrainian later this year) and was a Fulbright Scholar to Ukraine in 2009; she has continued to return to Ukraine every year since then, working on a variety of projects with museums and cultural organizations. She teaches community engagement in the online Johns Hopkins University Museum Studies Program. She writes regularly about her museum experiences at The Uncataloged Museum
Who should attend: museum colleagues, students, creative professionals, urban planners, and anyone who cares about creating a more vibrant community.
