How can we ensure that everyone in our communities has access to the opportunities and benefits provided by museums and other cultural organizations?
That's a question that the museum field continues to struggle with, but I just became aware of two sets of resources that might help foster new ways to provide opportunities for increased communication and creative partnerships.
- different ways in which “public engagement” can be defined and practiced,
- the purposes public engagement has been used for in the arts, and
- how the terms “audience” and “participant” have evolved and blurred over time.
The Our Museum program also produced a suite of online resources and reports that are tremendous resources to anyone engaged with communities and cultural organizations.
