Do you want to learn how to create new audiences, build partnerships and generate revenue through temporary exhibitions?

This workshop focuses on how temporary exhibitions can enhance and promote the mission of an institution, create new audiences and generate revenue. Starting with building an institutional strategy for exhibition making and partnership building, participants will explore the process behind making temporary exhibitions for display at home and for tour. This will include identifying exhibition objectives, shaping the narrative and content to create a compelling visitor experience, strategies for touring exhibitions nationally and internationally, and exploring the future of the temporary and touring exhibitions sector. The workshop will encourage a discursive and participatory approach. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own ideas and projects to the workshop and there will be time allocated for 1:1 consultation with the workshop facilitators.

The workshop will be delivered by Dana Andrew. Dana Andrew is an independent museum consultant and trainer specialising in temporary and touring exhibitions and international projects. Based in Dublin, Ireland, she is Professional Development Manager, trainer and mentor for TEG (Touring Exhibitions Group) and part-time Executive Director of ICOM UK (International Council of Museums UK). Supporting museums, galleries and cultural organisations to develop successful projects and programmes with impact, and having the vision, structure and processes in place to do this, is the main focus of Dana’s consultancy and training work. Dana is co-author and co-editor of the Principles & Guidelines for Lending & Borrowing (2021) published by NMDC and TEG, and author of the International Touring chapter of the TEG Manual of Touring Exhibitions (2017).
