Organizing Temporary Exhibitions from your Collections and Touring Strategies                                                                        

12-14 April, 2019

Location: Library of The Friends of Music Society, Megaron Mousikis Athinon (The Athens Concert Hall), Vasilissis Sofias & Kokkali 1, 115 21 Athens, Greece

A 3 day workshop that focuses on how temporary exhibitions can enhance and promote the mission of a museum, create new audiences and generate revenue for an institution.

Starting with a look at building an institutional strategy for exhibition making and partnership building, participants will explore the process behind making temporary exhibitions for display at home and for tour. This will include identifying exhibition objectives, shaping the narrative and content to create a compelling visitor experience as well as strategies for touring exhibitions nationally and internationally. The workshop will encourage a discursive and participatory approach and attendees are encouraged to bring their own ideas and projects to the table.

The workshop will be delivered by Rosie Wanek and Dana Andrew. Rosie Wanek is a freelance Exhibitions Manager and curator, who has worked for small and large institutions, such as Somerset House and Victoria & Albert Museum, specializing in exhibition development and delivery locally and internationally. Dana Andrew is a museum consultant with extensive experience in touring exhibitions and delivering international projects, and is part-time Executive Director of ICOM UK.
