Event description

Description

Although risk-taking is seen as a trending term in the museum field, is it an ideal tool leading to museum success? To look deeper into this question, this panel brings together professionals from various fields of expertise that have divergent experience taking risk in their respective institution to complete a project, from exhibition design to programming. They will share their experience balancing innovation and risk, breaking away from museum conventions and shifting 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, and finally, share their thoughts on the idea of a “path to success”.

The panel will be facilitated by MMSt Alumni and MMSt50 Committee Chair Melissa Smith, Co-ordinator - Gallery Guide Program, Adult Education Officer Program, and Access to Art Programs, Art Gallery of Ontario.

Panelists:
Kathleen Brown, Chief Operating Officer (COO), Lord Cultural Resources
Karen Carter, Founding Executive Director, Myseum of Toronto
Shaniqua Liston, Operations Coordinator, Kingston Penitentiary Tours - St. Lawrence Parks Commission
Jim Shedden Manager, Publishing and Curator, Art Gallery of Ontario

The panel will be followed by a networking cocktail where guests will be invited to share their thoughts on the topic with the panelists. Snacks will be provided and drinks available for purchase.

This event is free and open to the general public. Please register on Eventbrite as spaces are limited.
