Nurturing a Culture of Change: Creativity and Docents
Trinkley, Rachel
Journal of Museum Education, v39 n2 p187-196 Jul 2014
In late 2006, the Columbus Museum of Art adopted a new framework that established creativity as the lens for learning and visitor experiences. However, the museum's most passionate and supportive advocates, docents, were not necessarily aligned with this new direction. This article explores how staff worked to gain docent support and advocacy for a new educational vision, and what strategies were employed to build a docent culture that values thinking.
