Fostering a Culture of Engagement & Flourishing: a Systems-Thinking Approach to Planning in Cultural Organizations

Have you been noticing changes happening in the world around you – within your community, your region, your country and around the world? Has climate change become a force that is affecting your life? Are today’s economic and social trends making you want to find ways for your museum to do what it can to actively be part of creating meaningful, positive cultural change?

This scenario-based workshop will introduce you to a set of tools for sustainability planning that are specifically directed towards identifying current trends and systems-forces that are shaping our communities and our world today. With the use of this ‘systems thinking’ approach to planning, you will develop skills for thinking outside the box as you generate innovations designed to have positive impacts on the living culture, as well as on your heritage/cultural organization.

This highly interactive, co-creative day will be spent doing coordinated small group work. And you will build a unique pyramid in the process.

Join Us Wednesday September 26, 2018 9:30 am to 4:00 pm at the North Hills Museum for a pre-conference workshop facilitated by Doug Worts, Culture and Sustainability Specialist, WorldViews Consulting.

Tickets must be purchased separately and are $125. Lunch will be provided, Seating is limited to 20 participants.
