Each year, there are nearly 1 billion visits to museums in the US alone, and museum professionals are facing one common challenge: how to provide these visitors with a more engaging, meaningful experience?
On-demand access to information is fundamentally changing the way we seek and internalize knowledge, creating a great opportunity for museums and similar cultural institutions to rethink themselves.
Using Stanford d.School Design Thinking process and E-180’s approach to matchmaking for knowledge-sharing, we invite participants to rethink their institution's onsite engagement strategy, focusing on content and human interactions.
This is a collaborative four hour long workshop, including a field observation at the Blanton Museum of Art, where participants will create a prototype of a new product based on a challenge proposed by the Blanton’s Education Department.
We expect you to leave the workshop having learned how to go about need finding, ideation and the prototyping of a new product, supported by a team of museum, design thinking, and education professionals. You don't want to miss this unique opportunity!
- The only thing you need to attend this workshop is a passion for our cultural institutions and the willingness to get your hands dirty working on a new product prototype.
What to Bring:
- Nothing in particular.
