Randi Korn will discuss her book, Intentional Practice for Museums: A Guide for Maximizing Impact,with Danielle Rice, Professor of Arts Administration and Museum Leadership, Drexel University. The book describes an impact-driven way of thinking and working that places a museum’s reason for being—achieving impact—at the center of its work. It is sure to be a fascinating conversation that will deepen the knowledge of museum professionals considering or already pursuing intentional practice. This event, sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums is free and open to all. The first 10 MAAM members to arrive will receive free copies of the book. Museum Council Members are also very welcome!
Please RSVP to this event as seating will be limited. The conversation will begin promptly at 5:30pm so plan to arrive at 5:15pm. Following the conclusion of the discussion at 6:15pm, Randi will be available to sign books. If you would like to purchase your book at the event, a limited number will be available for sale. Light refreshments will be served.
