Public programming can foster learning, engagement and social experiences within the museum setting. Additionally, it presents an opportunity to encourage social responsibility and change. Hear Powerhouse Program Producers, Catherine Polcz and Brianna Barwise, discuss how they develop and deliver programs that engage audiences in the current climate debate.
Catherine and Brianna will take you through current programming taking place within 100 Conversations — a survey of leading Australian innovators acting on climate change that will take place over 100 weeks. This webinar will focus on innovative and exciting programming ideas to increase accessibility, engagement and participation in social causes.
The 30-minute online talk will be followed by a Q & A session.
