Museums face many challenges, and key amongst these is maintaining relevance and engaging our communities. Join Candace Matelic for two days of transformational instruction as you learn about engaging your community and the long-term benefits for your museum.

  • Learn what community engagement is and how it can be used
  • How community engagement will transform your organisation
  • Guidelines for engaging community & building productive partnerships
  • Key understanding of organisational change

Candace has a wealth of experience and practical knowledge in working with museums as they evolve in partnership with their communities. Check out to learn more about Candace and her work.

This workshop is a must for museums wanting to forge strong and vital relationships with their communities. Museum directors, curators and board members will learn important new skills and approaches for engaging their communities.
