Expert Panel Discussion: Risk-Taking in Museums
While risk-taking is a hot topic in the museum field, is it really a path to museum success?
This panel brings together museum professionals from different fields with risk-taking experience in everything from exhibition design to programming. They will discuss how they balance innovation and risk, break away from museum conventions, and shift institutional paradigms. The panelists will highlight the challenges and failures they faced along the way and what they have learned from being audacious in the museum field. Finally, they will share their thoughts on the idea of a “path to success”.
The panel will be facilitated by MMSt50 Committee Chair Melissa Smith, who is also Co-ordinator of the Gallery Guide, Adult Education Officer, and Access to Art programs at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
The panel will be followed by a networking cocktail with snacks and a cash bar.
This event is free and open to the general public. Please register on Eventbrite as spaces are limited.
