Claire’s Favourites: 4 Powerful Questions to Supercharge your Museum Programmes

  • by

For the next few weeks I’m choosing my favourite episodes from the back catalogue of the podcast. With over 100 episodes to now choose from, I’m taking this opportunity to revisit some of the episodes I’ve most enjoyed putting together. 

This week I’m sharing one of my absolute favourite episodes.

I’m sharing 4 game changing questions that will really transform your museum and gallery programmes.  I’ve chosen questions that work for me time after time with all sorts of different groups, different artworks or objects, different types of museums and environments.

These are all worth remembering (and carrying around in your educator ‘back pocket’).
