MESC Features - Inclusion and Collaboration from the Inside October 24 | 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM Free MESC Members | $10 Non-Members
Core to every Museum’s Education department is their team of gallery educators. Whether in the form of paid staff educators, volunteer docents, visitor service representatives or a combination of these three (or more), these key members of the museum community often serve as visitor’s first impression and are also most likely responsible for the lasting impression of many visitors’ overall museum experiences.
Join MESC and the Bowers Museum as they present staff and docent voices from some of the regions leading institutions in a panel conversation on best practices in training and evaluation of docents/educators particularly in response to the responsibility of museums in the 21st Century to provide visitors access to inclusive, respectful, and culturally relevant interpretive experiences of their collections and spaces.
This program is generously hosted by the Bowers Museum. Educators, coordinators, managers, and docents are encouraged to attend! This event is free MESC members. RSVPs are appreciated but not required.
