School Outreach and Museum-Architect Partnerships: An Initiative at the Canadian Centre for Architecture
Chalas, Agnieszka
Online Submission, M.A. Thesis, Concordia University
This thesis focuses on an educational partnership between the Canadian Centre for Architecture and Architects in Action, which explores the potential of utilizing professional arts practitioners in an outreach capacity to extend museum programming. It seeks to answer the following questions: How did the architects' experiences compare to their expectations, and what are the benefits and challenges to using architects as facilitators of post-visit museum activities within the classroom setting? A series of architect interviews, teacher surveys, and classroom observations were conducted and analyzed in order to gain insight into the strengths and weaknesses of the educational partnership and to ascertain how such partnerships can be improved. The findings generated by this study were used as a basis for the development of a series of recommendations intended to contribute to the improvement of practice within similar educational projects.
