March 23: Community Engagement Strategies
Facilitator: Eileen Corcoran
Contributor: Chris Dissinger, Assistant Director, Fleming Museum of Art
Engaging directly with our communities in our work has become an increasingly important strategy for increasing impact, gaining support, and ensuring relevancy. The challenge is that engagement can sometimes be daunting and difficult. Where do you begin? how to prioritize who you work with and how? Bring your questions and your community engagement experiences to this open discussion.
