Adaptation Not Invention

Start with what you already do.

As museum professionals, you are already designing and facilitating great programs and activities about your exhibitions and collections for a variety of audiences.  You have the content knowledge.  You have the presentation skills. 

Artful Moments is not about inventing something completely new, but carefully adapting what you already do to accommodate the particular strengths and needs of your audience.

Think about the programs and activities you already offer – tour, hands-on and more – focusing on the ones that are the most interactive.  List a few of your favourites, and what you (and your current audience) love about them.  Keep this list in mind for later.
